Exhibition Catalogue Francisco de Goya, presented at the Beyeler Foundation, Switzerland (October 10, 2021 - January 23, 2022).

In his more than sixty-year-long career, Francisco de Goya (1746–1828) was an astute observer of the drama of reason and irrationality, of dreams and nightmares.

His pictures show things that go beyond social conventions: he depicts saints and criminals, witches and demons, breaking open the gates to realms where the boundaries between reality and fantasy blur. The show gathers more than seventy paintings, around sixty masterful drawings, and a selection of prints that invite the viewer to an encounter with the beautiful, as well as the incomprehensible.

The exhibition brings together around 70 paintings and more than 100 masterful drawings and prints, inviting viewers on a journey into the beautiful and the unfathomable. For the first time, seldom seen paintings from Spanish private collections are shown alongside key works from the most prestigious European and American museums and private collections.

The extensive catalogue examines Goya's unique artistic impact in texts by renowned interpreters, and splendid photo galleries.
