ARTH 4469 Goya, Spain, and Modernism (Spring: 3 )
Goya, the commanding figure of Spanish art at the end of the 18th century has garnered a complex scholarship. Writers have addressed his Spanishness, his position within history as the ordinary modernist, and his vital psychology. We will explore these topics as well as the realist/idealist nature of his paintings and prints, and his enlightened interpretation of human seeing and not seeing--as a way of understanding the coherence of the man and his art.
