These bookmarks have been designed and made exclusively for the NGV design store in celebration of Goya: Drawings from the Prado Museum.
The world-exclusive exhibition Goya: Drawings from the Prado Museum at the NGV features more than 160 works on paper by Francisco Goya (1746–1828), celebrating the artist’s extraordinary imagination. In humorous observations, confronting depictions of violence, and surreal flights of fantasy, he presents a vision of humanity that had no equivalent in the art of his day.
