The Norton Simon's latest exhibition is of Spanish artist Francisco de Goya y Lucientes, which will be on display until March 3, 2014. Goya was known for his painting, especially portraits, and printmaking. He joined the art world late 1700s and early 1800s so he often associated with the Old Masters and the Modernists.

Goya's Don Pedro, Duque de Osuna is on loan from The Frick Collection in New York. It is situated with a few of his other works, which the Norton Simon has in their permanent collection. This painting is of Don Pedro, 9th Duque de Osuna and is just one of many works Goya was commissioned to do. Along with this painting, tours will be conducted that further explain Goya's influence on the Spanish Enlightenment and other painting Masters.

Unflinching Vision: Goya’s Rare Prints shows off Spain in his point of view. It shows off his ability to etch in detail and capture the moments in time. He depicted people in various situations - prostitutes, children, observers at the bullring, those in battle, and more. He also drew imaginary creatures and the supernatural just to show off his creativity. Performances and tours also accompany this exhibition.

Norton Simon is located in Pasadena and is open every day, except Tuesday. Check their website for information on exhibitions and events and visitor information.
