Goya in Miami

Last night Carol and I went to a reception for Davidson College alumni and parents of alumni and students. Dr. Shaw Smith, a professor in the art history department, spoke on Goya. The event was presented at the Freedom Tower, a few blocks from our office, where an exhibit of Goya's engravings is being presented. You can read about the exhibit here. We had time to see part of the exhibit after the reception, but Carol and I want to go back and see it all.

Remember all his paintings we saw in El Prado? Those of the royal family seemed particularly irreverent. The royals continued to commission him to paint for them--as small and foolish as he made them seem in his portraits.

Vamos a Espana otra vez!
