Sammlung Scharf Gerstenberg shows Goya: Yo lo vi – Ich sah es – I Saw It
Yo lo vi” (I saw it) was Francisco de Goya’s comment on the 44th sheet of his “Desastres” from 1863. In view of the current war in Europe, the Scharf-Gerstenberg Collection is dedicated to the famous Spanish court painter, who denounced wars and social grievances in his cycles. The exhibition shows all four print cycles, whereby the sheets of the “Caprichos” and “Desastres de la guerra”, which are exclusively available in bound books, can be seen for the first time in their entirety as large projections.
