Renaissance to Goya

On 20 September The British Museum in London opens Renaissance to Goya: prints and drawings from Spain, which runs until 6 January 2013 (CLICK). This is a free exhibition drawn from the Museum's own collection, many of which have never been on display before. It brings together for the first time prints and drawings by mainly Spanish and important European artists working in Spain from the mid-16th to the early 19th century, including Diego Velázquez, Vicente Carducho, Alonso Cano, Bartolomé Murillo, Francisco de Zubarán, José de Ribera and Francisco de Goya. Shown is Francisco de Zurbarán's masterly drawing of the Head of a Monk, using black chalk and grey wash (c.1625–1664).
