Fantasies, Follies and Disasters features 30 prints selected from the artist’s three best-known and most significant groups of etchings: Los Caprichos (The Fantasies), Los Desastres della Guerra (The Disasters of War), and Los Disparates (The Follies).
Just fantastic! Really worth a visit or even more than one. I am intending to go back again before the exhibition closes. What amazing images and comment on the happenings in his society, especially for the “ordinary” citizen, and on the plight of women and the state of education. I laughed outloud more than once while viewing these etchings and felt moved with sadness also. 3 years ago

to widen this goal as getting to concerts regularly is not always possible! Plus I don’t do as much of these other things as I used to do. Having them as a goal is important to encourage me to make more effort! 4 years ago
I took at the concert earlier this month. I know you can’t see anything as my camera is not at it’s best with lights and movement etc., but I do quite like it anyway. 4 years ago
