Francisco Goya
© José Baztán Lacasa

The Spanish father of modern art is coming to the Israel Museum.

The Spanish romantic master Francisco Goya has found his way into the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. The artist focuses on the contrasting roles of night and day—nighttime calls for monsters that threaten to engulf the world, until dawn breaks and banishes them. The exhibition features ten of his oil paintings, including “The Parasol,” “Flight of Witches,” and “The Straw Manikin” which have traveled far and wide from the Prado Museum in Madrid. Also on display are etchings from various stages of his artistic life. The exhibition marks thirty years of diplomatic relations between Israel and Spain.
