Date: Saturday, February 01, 2014
Time: 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Speaker: Dr. Marcus B. Burke, Senior Curator, The Hispanic Society of America

While the Spanish painter Francisco Goya is famous as one of the world’s first great modern artists, he is equally celebrated as a quintessentially Spanish master. Dr. Marcus B. Burke investigates the ways in which the values of Hispanic culture are expressed in the visual arts, and how Goya both celebrated and criticized these values in his works.
