The first exhibition in the UK to focus solely on Goya’s portraits. It will look at a wide range of works across his career, from official commissions depicting monarchs and generals through to informal images capturing close friends and colleagues. Among them, court servants in Madrid,such as Andrés del Peral (c.1797), who was appointed guilder to the court of Charles III in 1785, only a year before Goya’s own appointment as court painter. The exhibition will present new research on the artist and sitters by its curator Xavier Bray, Chief Curator, Dulwich Picture Gallery and ARTES member.
Goya in Madrid. The Tapestry Cartoons 1775-1794

Curators: Manuela Mena, Head Curator of the Goya and 18th Century Art Department, and Gudrun Maurer, Curator of the Goya and 18th Century Painting Department at the Museo del Prado
The exhibition of over 140 works proposes a new approach to Goya’s tapestry cartoons by treating them as illustrating the artist’s thought processes and development at the beginning of his career. Cartoons are shown alongside the tapestries for which they were made in the Escorial and Pardo palaces. They are compared with the work of contemporaneous and historic artists to illustrate Goya’s sources and inspiration.
