Andrew W. Mellon Collection
1937.1.88 114 paintings, drawings, tapestry cartoons, tapestries, and prints were shown in this first major exhibition to consider the work of Francisco Goya y Lucientes through his representation of women. The works were drawn primarily from the collection of the Museo Nacional del Prado, Madrid, the Patrimonio Nacional, Madrid, and the National Gallery of Art, with additional major loans from American and European collections. Included were portraits, genre scenes, and additional images of women created by the artist throughout his career. The exhibition was organized on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Fundación Amigos del Museo del Prado. A slightly different version of the exhibition in Madrid had the title Goya: La imagen de la mujer.
