Phantasmagoria

Impression & Projection: The Phantasmagoria in the Art of Goya, Robertson, and Méliès

April 24 - May 15, 2014

In this exhibition, the significance of phantasmagoria as a source of artistic inspiration in the works of three influential artists in European art is explored. These artists are Francisco Goya (1746 – 1828), Étienne-Gaspard Robertson (1763 – 1837), and George Méliès (1861 – 1938). Through the display of prints and projections, this presentation compares the artists’ elaborations of phantasmagorical subject matter to develop new visual experiences.
