The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA) will host the largest retrospective of Spanish artist Francisco Goya’s works in America in 25 years starting Oct. 12.
“Goya: Order and Disorder” will feature more than 160 paintings, prints and drawings.
Goya lived from 1746 to 1848. He was court painter for four successive rulers of Spain, and explored a wide range of topics, from internal emotional states to historical events and portraiture.
According to MFA press materials, the relationship between order and disorder is fundamental to Goya’s work, and that juxtaposition is explored in the exhibition.
Works on exhibit will include “The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters,” “Seated Giant,” “Duchess of Alba,” “Yard with Madmen” and “Witches’ Sabbath.”
The exhibit will be on view in the Ann and Graham Gund Gallery from Oct. 12 to Jan. 19. The MFA, at 465 Huntington Ave., is the only venue for the exhibition. For more information, see mfa.org.
