Join us at the opening reception of a new University of San Diego exhibit, Goya’s Restless Monsters: “Los Caprichos” and the Birth of the Modern Print. The work demonstrates not only Goya's prowess as a virtuosic and experimental printmaker but also his critical views of late 18th century Spanish society and biting cynicism about the human condition. Epigrams inscribed under the images reveal Goya’s facility with puns and his innate sense of how word and image can be powerfully combined.

The exhibit runs from Nov. 11  through Jan. 17 in the Robert and Karen Hoehn Family Galleries in Founders Hall. It is a companion to the Goya exhibit Disasters of War, currently on display until Dec. 12 in the Fine Arts Gallery of the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice.
