Goya Returns (June 4 - September 5, 2021)

Goya’s portrait of Don Mañuel Garcia de la Prada entered the Art Center’s collection in 1953 with the deliberate goal to add a traditional “masterpiece” to the museum’s collection. In recent years, the Art Center staff realized the need for the 200-year old painting to be cleaned and conserved. This delicate task has finally been achieved, and we are proud to re-introduce Don Prada to our community, looking literally better than he has in decades. In celebration of this return, the painting will be surrounded with the Goya prints in the collection, representing several of the Spanish genius’ satirical and nightmarish works.
