Engravings Museum and Zuluaga Hall

Add to my travel

In Fuendetodos, next door to Goya’s birth house, lies the Engravings Museum. It is located in a typical Aragonese house, restored in three floors where four magnificent engraving series painted by Goya are exhibited.

Engravings Museum hosts four series of Goya’s engravings: The Whims, War disasters, Bullfighting and The Follies. This permanent collection makes a visit to Fuendetodos worth it.

In his engravings, Goya would put the best out of himself and worked with absolute freedom, what made completely the difference from contemporary engravers.

He started engraving just for fun, but he soon became aware of the great creative opportunities which this technique provided, so it became a perfect vehicle to loosen his subjective and intimate world, boundless to creativity.

Next door lies Zuluaga Hall, opened to the public in 1996 and devoted to Temporary exhibitions specialized in graphic art. Along these decades significant exhibitions about historic engraving and contemporary graphic art have been held.
