Beyeler Foundation presents one of the most importantexhibitionsever dedicated to Francisco de Goya (1746–1828) outside of Spain. Goya was both the artist of great portraits and the inventor of mysterious, personal pictorial worlds. It is in these seemingly insoluble contradictions that we discover the magical charm of Goya's art.
For his more than sixty-year artistic career, which ranged from Rococo to the romantic period, Goya portrayed cases that went beyond the social conventions of his time. He painted saints and criminals, witches and demons, opening the gates to kingdoms that do not distinguish between reality and fantasy.
The exhibition was developed in collaboration with the National Prado Museum in Madrid.
