Los Caprichos, an 80-print exhibit by Francisco Goya, is showing at the Albuquerque Museum of Art & History through May 13, 2012.While the artwork itself is fascinating, even more stunning is the commentary that accompanies and somewhat explains each print.
As stated by the exhibit’s curator, Robert Flynn Johnson, “… the imagery unleashed in the unrelentingly dark and cynical series of Los Caprichos continues to provoke and disturb our contemporary consciousness–even after two centuries! That is the essence of great art, to endure, and to continue to have relevance.”
