ZARAGOZA.- The President of the government of Aragon, Marcelino Iglesias, inaugurated today at the Museo de Zaragoza the exhibition “Goya and the Modern World” which includes 345 works of art – 138 made by the artist from Fuendetodos—in which the influence of the painter from Aragon reflects on artists from the 19th and 20th centuries.

Apart from the works by Goya, some of the most representative, such as the portrait of Melchor Gaspar de Jovellanos and the Duquesa de Lazán, or the well known Milkmaid of Bordeaux, there are works of art made bi other artists such as Eugène Delacroix, Théodore Géricault, Vincent Van Gogh, Edvard Munch, Edouard Manet, Karel Appel and Alberto Giacometti.

The Museo de Zaragoza will open this exhibit on Thursday, December 18, and this exhibition will be open to the public until the first week of March. The exhibition has been organized by the Government of Aragon and the Goya Foundation.

This new exhibition in the Museo de Zaragoza also presents important Works of art made by 20th Century painters who were influenced by Goya, some of them are Karel Appel, Salvador Dalí, Alberto Giacometti, Ludwig Kirchner, James Ensor, Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso and Antonio Saura.

The exhibition is divided in six sections that cover various themes that Goya reflected in his paintings. These are placed together with works made by other artists from the 19th and 20th Centuries. These six sections are: Portraits, Slices of Life, Foolishness, the Grotesque, Violence and the Scream.

All the works of art contained in this exhibition show the influence Goya had on contemporary art and culture, something that has been analyzed with the passing of time and after several investigations.

The paintings come from 18 countries. Most of them have been loaned by France ( from the Bibliothèque Nationale in France and the Musée du Louvre in Paris), from Spain (Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Museo Nacional del Prado, Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, among others).

There are also paintings from the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, who have previously loaned works of art for other Goya exhibitions in Zaragoza. The Metropolitan Museum and the Museum of Modern Art in New York also loaned paintings.
