Goya. Light and Shade

The National Museum of Western Art. Tokio 10/22/2011 - 1/29/2012

The Prado has placed great emphasis on the organisation of this exhibition, which presents a sizeable selection of its collection of paintings, drawings and prints by Goya, one of the artists most admired by the Japanese public. The exhibition is shown at the National Museum of Western Art in Tokyo.The works to be shown have been selected with the intention of offering the visiting public a chronological survey of the work of Goya. Without aiming at being exhaustive, the exhibition is structured into different sections in the manner of small visual accounts that analysesd the principal themes depicted by the artist during the course of his career. The result will be to present a series of fundamental ideas around which Goya’s artistic, political and social thinking was articulated.

Curators:
Manuela Mena, Museo Nacional del Prado Senior Curator Eighteenth-century Painting and José Manuel Matilla, Museo Nacional del Prado Head of Department Drawings and Prints
Co-organized by:

The different sections of the exhibition reflects thus the social reality of Goya’s life, in which monarchs, the social elite, his friends and the working people all played prominent roles. It also focus on the thematic variety and impressive technique evident throughout Goya’s oeuvre in all the different media in which he worked, as well as the fact that he simultaneously produced official commissions and other works of a freer, more critical nature that were the response to his own expressive needs. An important aspect of the exhibition is its emphasis on Goya’s astonishing mastery of the different techniques employed in his paintings, drawings and prints, which laid the way for the subsequent liberation achieved by modern art. Visitors to the exhibition will also be able to appreciate technical and conceptual links between Goya and later artists that established a unique path and one that made him 'the first modern artist'.

The exhibition will feature more than 100 works, including 45 prints by Goya from the collection of the National Museum of Western Art in Tokyo, where the exhibition will be held, as well as 6 from other Japanese institutions: the Nagasaki Prefectural Art Museum and the Fuji Art Museum, the latter also in Tokyo. The Museo del Prado will be lending around 25 paintings and 46 works on paper.
