Goya's Los Caprichos: An Enlightened Bestiary

Goya's Los Caprichos: An Enlightened Bestiary

Date: April 14, 2011
Creator: Thompson, Julie & Donahue-Wallace, Kelly, 1968-
Description: This presentation discusses research on Francisco de Goya. The author argues that the iconography and allegories found within medieval bestiaries influenced certain prints depicting human, animal, and hybrid figures within Francisco de Goya's (1746-1838) series 'Los Caprichos'. However, in contrast to the medieval bestiary, which employs animal symbolism for morally didactic purposes, Goya reworks the composition of bestial allegories in order to enlighten the viewer on the immortality that is innate, universal, and destructive.
