This week I went to one of my favourite places in London, Room 90 Prints & Drawings, where presently being exhibited are some fine Goya prints, part of an exhibition ‘Renaissance to Goya: prints and drawings from Spain’. Prints on display included images from ‘The Disasters Of War’, ‘The Disparates’, and ‘La Tauromaquia’. I felt a real thrill viewing them in the flesh so to speak, such a different experience compared with looking at book reproductions or web images. Goya’s prints for me are powerful, full of charater and narrative; many seem fresh and modern in form and composition, they spoke to me directly.
