In the free exhibition, Renaissance To Goya: Prints And Drawings From Spain, the British Museum sets out to challenge the perception that the seventeenth century Spanish artist, Francisco de Goya, was operating as a 'lone genius'. It does this by placing him within the context of scientific, social and artistic developments taking place in Spain and Europe at the time. With the building of Philip II's monastery of the Escorial near Madrid foreign artists arrived in Spain creating a rich exchange of ideas. Works by influential visitors such as the Italians Pellegrino Tibaldi and Federico Zuccaro, and the Flemish printmaker Pedro Perret, are displayed alongside important pieces by native talents including Diego Velazquez, Alonso Cano, Bartolome Murillo, and Jusepe de Ribera. The last part of the exhibition is devoted to Goya and his contemporaries, including the Tiepolo family who arrived in Madrid from Italy in the 1760s, worked for Charles III, and whose etchings revolutionised printmaking in Madrid.
