Venue: University of Arizona Museum of Art
Start Time: 5:00pm

Spanning from the early 1770s to the late 1820s, Francisco de Goya’s art career coincided with one of the most turbulent periods in European history.

Taking its point of departure from the title “I Saw It” given to a print in Goya’s The Disasters of War series, this wide-ranging talk by Andrew Schulz, vice president for the arts and dean of the College of Fine Arts, asks, “What did Goya see, and how did those experiences shape his art?” And also, “What did ‘seeing’ mean to Goya and his European contemporaries?”

The talk at the University of Arizona Museum of Art will be followed by a viewing of Goya prints in the UAMA permanent collection.

Dean Schulz will also give this presentation on April 27 at the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena, California, in conjunction with the opening of their exhibition, “I Saw It: Francisco de Guyana Printmaker,” April 17-Aug. 5.
