Francisco de Goya’s Los Caprichos, an exhibition of etchings, one of the most influential graphic series in the history of Western art will be on view through Jan. 3, 2015. This exhibition features a superb first edition of the complete set of 80 etchings, which by tradition was one of the four sets acquired directly from Goya in 1799 by the duke of Osuna. It then came into the hands of Pedro Fernández Durán, of the house of the marquis of Perales, the greatest Spanish collector of the 19th century and a major donor to the Prado. His collector’s mark appears on all 80 prints of this set.

Reservations are NOT required, but please call ahead if you have a large group!
