'Goya and his Critics' book launch

Introduced by Holly Trusted, from V&A, an ARTES co-founder together with Nigel Glendinning and Dr Sarah Symmons.

Join ARTES (Iberian and Latin American Visual Culture Group) in celebrating the publication of a new edition of Nigel Glendinning's Goya And His Critics by University of Essex Visiting Fellow Art Historian Dr Sarah Symmons and Autonomous University of Madrid Art Historian Dr Jesusa Vega.

Nigel Glendinning’s Goya and His Critics was first published in English in 1977 and appeared in Spanish some five years later. This was the first great synthesis of the reception of Goya as an artist and this new edition assesses the importance of Glendinning’s research not only for Goya studies but for Hispanic art and culture in general. This study includes essays by Jesusa Vega and Sarah Symmons, and a foreword by Valeriano Bozal, and analyses Glendinning’s mission to reveal the mysterious and evocative art of Goya to a culture which found the artist’s originality disturbing as well as inspiring.

Admission is free but registration is required at Eventbrite.
