Works on Paper Highlights Talk: Caricature in Callot and Goya

Wednesday, August 10, 2022

Curatorial Assistant Sophie Kerwin presents a close look at the inventive etchings of French artist Jacques Callot (1592–1635) and Spanish artist Francisco de Goya (1746–1828). In exploring these artists’ novel use of caricature, whether political, social, or religious, this talk also complements the special exhibition José Guadalupe Posada: Symbols, Skeletons, and Satire.
