The Caprichos: Etchings by Emily Lo… All Day

The Caprichos: Etchings by Emily Lombardo

Description:

The Caprichos is a series of etchings that are in direct conversation with and pay homage to Francisco Goya’s “Los Caprichos” of 1799. Both reveal the dark underbelly of cultural movements that ultimately serve to divide society across economic, racial, political, religious, and gender lines. Lombardo, an artist who investigates personal and cultural identity in her work, brings these issues to light through a queer feminist lens.
