Join the Friends of the Davison Art Center for a tour with one of the curators of Goya: Order and Disorder at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. One of the titans of European art, Francisco Goya (1746–1828) witnessed a time of revolution and sweeping change in thought and behavior. This comprehensive exhibition displays the full range of Goya’s ingenuity, from the elegant full-length portraits of aristocrats that established his reputation in Madrid, to the satirical prints that carried his fame beyond his country, and the sympathetic or acerbic drawings from his private albums that reveal the very foundation of his ideas.  To learn more about the exhibition visit the FDAC blog.
