Goya’s Prison: The Year of Despair

Visitors to The Bowes Museum have the chance to see an in depth exhibition focussing on a small but career defining painting created during a turning point in the life of the Spanish painter Goya, before a group of the Museum's key Spanish paintings go on loan to The Meadows Museum in Dallas in September.

The Director of The Bowes Museum, Adrian Jenkins, has curated this show, which looks specifically at the Museum's The Interior of a Prison.

This work was created after a tumultuous period in the painters life when he became severely ill and although he eventually recovered he was left profoundly deaf.
