Overview

During his lifetime, the industrialist and collector Norton Simon (1907–1993) amassed a trove of European paintings, drawings, and prints by Rembrandt, Picasso, Degas, and others. Simon occasionally became fascinated with a particular artist's oeuvre, and that passion inspired him to assemble monographic holdings of work by several masters, chief among them Francisco de Goya (1746–1828).
 
This book is the first to examine the extraordinary Goya collection—which includes more than 1,400 prints, a drawing, and three paintings—in the founder's namesake museum. Simon's enduring interest in serial images led him to acquire prints from various series and editions treating a range of subjects, such as religious iconography, landscapes, portraits, and social satire. Spotlighting rare proofs and single prints, the catalogue also presents a complete set each of Los Caprichos, Disasters of War, and other seminal series. Lushly illustrated and authored by a distinguished Goya scholar, this catalogue is an essential guide to a treasure trove of the artist’s works.
