This fall, the Meadows Museum, along with the Bywaters Special Collections at the Hamon Arts Library, will celebrate a generous gift containing over two-dozen works by the artist H. O. Robertson. Given by members of the artist’s family, the works include ten paintings and four cliché verre plates to the Meadows Museum’s University Art Collection, and nine drawings and ten lithographs to the Bywaters Special Collections. A selection of these works will be on view at the Meadows Museum from November 9, 2014 to March 1, 2015.
Goya: A Lifetime of Graphic Invention will present Francisco de Goya’s printed oeuvre as an integral component of his life and career and will invite a reconsideration of the Museum’s paintings by the artist. The exhibition will offer the rare opportunity to simultaneously view complete first edition sets of Goya’s four major print series, Los Caprichos (1799), Los Desastres de la Guerra (1810-19), La Tauromaquia (1816), and Los Disparates (1816-23).
