About

Celebrate one of Spain’s most famous artists: Francisco de Goya y Lucientes. Goya was a supremely gifted portrait painter and social commentator, who took the genre of portraiture to new heights through his ability to reveal the psychology of his sitter.

This landmark exhibition - the first to ever focus solely on his portraits - re-appraises Goya’s genius as a portraitist and provides a penetrating insight into both public and private aspects of his life. It explores Goya’s ambitions and development as a painter, and his unconventional approach to portraiture.
