    Goya - Order and Disorder

    July 16 - December 28, 2014

    Museum of Fine Art - Avenue of the Arts, 465 Huntington Avenue, Boston, Massachusetts 02115

    This exhbit takes an innovative approach, organizing the extreme variety of the artist's output thematically. The exhibition employs the poles of order and disorder to structure Goya's creativity, moving from dignified portraits and daily rituals to the chaos of war and the pandemonium of the Bordeaux bull ring. Goya also attended to the fertile territory between the competing forces of order and disorder. In some works, either harmony or chaos prevails, but most exhibit a disquieting tension between these opposites.

    The exhbit is divided into eight major sections. These address such themes as the nurturing and abuse of children; hunting as sport and metaphor; religious devotion and superstition; equilibrium and loss of balance; justice gone awry; and the symbolism of the giant. This framework enables the visitor to perceive connections across media and time that the artist himself made.

    This is the largest Goya exhibition in North America in a quarter century and is on view only at the MFA.
