ROMANIA
The Curse of the War
Goya’s engravings spark the interest of connoisseurs but also of those who get to see them for the first time, both by means of their artistic value and technical qualities, and by means of the moral message they carry, the best known one being The sleep of reason births monsters. By means of his work, Goya shows us that art needs to stand up to the world’s horrors and against human vice. Alongside Goya’s engravings belonging to the themes of Tauromaquia, The Disasters of War and the Caprices, the exhibition will also feature works by Dali inspired by Goya, from the private collection of George Șerban. Salvador Dali was impressed by the masterpieces of his compatriot, thus he decided to interpret the famous series of the Caprices conveying the special artistic touch of Dali to each and every one of them.

Goya’s work can speak to us clearly nowadays, as it did during the time it was created in, having fascinated generation upon generation. The habits exposed and the omnipresent cruelty, combined with the abuse perpetrated against certain social classes, continue to stir powerful emotions in any viewer.

The exhibition is organized in partnership with the Spanish Embassy in Romania.
