Goya. Light and Shade
16 March - 24 June 2012
Between 16 March and 24 June visitors to the CaixaForum in Barcelona can see Goya. Light and Shade, a major exhibition devoted to the artist’s work organised by the Museo del Prado and Obra Social “la Caixa” as the result of a collaborative agreement signed by the two institutions last year. Obra Social “la Caixa” and the Prado have been working together since 2009 on the Art of Educating programme that introduces young people to the pleasures of looking at works of art. The present exhibition marks a further step in this collaborative arrangement and is the starting point for a series of four travelling exhibitions, co-produced by the two institutions with the aim of encouraging greater knowledge and share the Prado’s holdings outside of the Museum in Madrid. The exhibitions could be held in CaixaForum venues or in other exhibition spaces in Spain.
