In this TALK, we will explore four of Goya's witchcraft paintings that we can see in Spain.
The Bath at La Granja, 1907
In the summer of 1907, Joaquín Sorolla painted in the gardens of La Granja de San Ildefonso, an idyllic setting he had briefly encountered the previous autumn when he went to paint the portrait of King Alfonso XIII. He found the gardens very beautiful to work in. On this summer trip, he enjoyed the company of his family and painted for long days for pleasure and in the fresh air, in a natural setting that invited experimentation.

I managed to see two fabulous exhibitions at our wonderful Fine Arts Museum in Valencia, along with a few of my favourite art-loving women.
Diego Rodríguez de Silva y Velázquez (1599 - 1660) was one of Spain's most intelligent and talented painters in Spanish history.
This TALK will compare two paintings by Diego Velázquez in order to discover the secrets behind his evolution and genius.
1 - one of his first paintings, Christ in the House of Martha and Mary (1618), from his early years as a student in Seville. T
2 - Las Meninas or The Family of Felipe IV (1656), considered a masterpiece and the crowning achievement of his genius, painted at the end of his career.
