Spanish & Art: "Goya, a critical mind" | Friday, 17. July 2020
About this Event
Discover a fascinating way of enjoying Art whilst learning Spanish. Combining a Spanish and an Art History lesson, together we’ll unveil the masterpieces’ meaning, visual analysis and historical context.
Often considered the first truly modern artist, Goya was a shrewd observer of the uproarious events in the late 18th and early 19th century Spain. From his sly critique of the ruling class to his satirical view of the society around him, Goya leaves a testimony of his time.
His highly inventive work, his engravings’ dreamlike subjects and grotesque imagery, and his witty social commentary presaged the works of Picasso and the Surrealism of Salvador Dali.
In this workshop we will not only discover Goya’s fascinating art, but also the tumultuous political context of the Spain of his time.
We will send you the link to join the workshop on Zoom.
