This exhibition showcases his far-reaching influence among artists such as William Merritt Chase (1849–1916), Jean-Léon Gérôme (1824–1904), Jean Louis Ernest Meissonier (1815–1891), John Singer Sargent (1856–1925), James Tissot (1836–1902), and many more.

Goya’s Visions in Ink: The Centerpiece of the Meadows Drawings Collection
THROUGH NOVEMBER 3, 2019 This exhibition highlights the Meadows’s recent acquisition of Francisco de Goya’s exceptional ink drawing Visions (c. 1819–23) from his “Witches and Old Women” album. This important acquisition is the first drawing by Goya to enter the museum’s collection, which already includes key paintings and prints by the Spanish master: The Meadows Museum now joins only a handful of institutions worldwide that can boast such significant holdings of the artist’s work across media.
This exhibition has been organized by the Meadows Museum and funded by a generous gift from The Meadows Foundation.
