Sarah Symmons: Goya and his Critics
Book Launch with an introduction by Holly Trusted, from V&A, an ARTES co-founder together with Nigel Glendinning and Sarah Symmons, Visiting Fellow, Art History Department, University of Essex
We are honoured to join ARTES (Iberian and Latin American Visual Culture Group) in celebrating the publication of a new edition of Nigel Glendinning’s Goya And His Critics by Dr Sarah Symmons and Dr Jesusa Vega.
Nigel Glendinning’s ‘ Goya and His Critics’ was first published in English in 1977 and appeared in Spanish some five years later. This was the first great synthesis of the reception of Goya as an artist and this new edition assesses the importance of Glendinning’s research not only for Goya studies but for Hispanic art and culture in general. This study includes essays by Jesusa Vega and Sarah Symmons, and a foreword by Valeriano Bozal, and analyses Glendinning’s mission to reveal the mysterious and evocative art of Goya to a culture which found the artist’s originality disturbing as well as inspiring.
Sarah Symmons-Goubert has won numerous awards for her academic work. She has published five books on art history, including Art & Ideas, Goya (Phaidon Press, 1998) and Goya, a life in letters (Pimlico, Random House, 2004).
