Museo Goya – Colección Ibercaja information
Outside of Madrid’s Museo del Prado, this excellent museum contains what is arguably, the best expose of the work of one of Spain’s most revered artists. A recent refurbishment (and renaming) has only enhanced its credentials. The place is exceedingly well laid-out with each of its three floors carrying a different theme.
The first floor amasses some of the art that influenced Goya. The second exhibits the man himself through his paintings and prints. Four complete sets of his prints are included, most notably the groundbreaking but sometimes grotesque, Los Desastres de la Guerra (Disasters of War). The top floor investigates Goya’s massive influence by tracking through the work of his imitators and followers.
