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.

The Decapitation of Kings

Date: April 14, 2011
Creator: Palyu, Cheryl & Donahue-Wallace, Kelly, 1968-
Description: This presentation accompanies a paper discussing research on Francisco de Goya. The author argues that the painting of Francisco de Goya (1746-1828) from 1800 ('The Cannibals') and his paintings from 1823 to 1825 (The Black Paintings; 'Judith' and 'Saturn' and Miniature 'Judith') represent the changing ideals on decapitation of a monarch. The research employs semiotics to determine the change in the representation of decapitation in relation to the King and his rule.
