This past week on Thurs. January 8, The National Arts Club presented Los Caprichos, a rarely seen series of etchings and aquatint, from famed Spanish artist Francisco de Goya. The National Arts Club was actually given the collection back in 1994, as a gift from Robert Henri’s last heir. There was a mistake in the intake and the collection went undiscovered until an archivist recently discovered them.


Guests arrived on Thursday for a celebratory opening and advanced viewing, complete with wine and canapés. Browsers included Brazilian Ambassador Ana Lucy Cabral Petersen, Cornelia Guest, Angela Bernhard Thomas, Dr. Alex Rosenberg, Interior Designers Tony Ingrao and Randy Kempner; Lisa Jackson, Sheila Rosenblum, Christine Schott-Ledes and George Ledes, Novitas US CEO Nicole Noonan and Steven Knobel, Jean Shafiroff, Pamela O’Connor, Morgan O’Connor, Janna Bullock, Hillary Weldon, Whitney Mercurio and artists Anton Perich, Matt Tierney, Abdullah Qandeel and Josh Rachlin.


 


The  exhibition, titled Francisco de Goya y Lucientes: Los Caprichos  is on view until January 31. For more information please visit www.nationalartsclub.org or call Office of Fine Arts at The National Arts Club on (212) 475-3424.
