Forthcoming exhibition:
Goya Portraits
National Gallery, London
Wed 7 October 2015 – Sun 10 January 2016

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.
