About Claudia Hopkins on Goya
Goya’s ‘Los Disparates’ exhibition at Pollok House is now entering its final month, with the prolific Spanish painter’s eerie etchings being shown as a complete collection for the final time.
The fragile artworks are extremely light-sensitive and have been brought out of storage for a limited time before they must be returned on March 29.
The unusual series features a number of fantastical and grotesque creatures, including a nightmarish giant called ‘The Bobalicon’. It was produced between 1815 and 1823 after a mysterious illness left Goya permanently deaf, providing a fascinating insight into the workings of the artist’s state of mind. However, the series is also an interesting commentary on the social and political conditions of Goya’s Spain.
In addition to the exhibition, a series of talks will be held at Pollok House to help visitors deepen their understanding of Goya’s work and process.
On 7 March at 11.30am, Claudia Hopkins, Spanish art expert and senior lecturer at Edinburgh College of Art, will present a talk in the exhibition space to help visitors get to grips with these enigmatic works.
