Goya and the Altamira Family

At The Met Fifth Avenue
April 22–August 3, 2014

Exhibition Overview

This exhibition features Goya's four portraits of members of the Altamira family, including the so-called Boy in Red, one of the Metropolitan Museum's most beloved Old Master paintings. Also on view is a fifth Altamira portrait, by Agustín Esteve. This is the first time these family portraits—now dispersed in public and private collections in Spain and the United States—have been seen together as a group.

The exhibition is made possible by the Placido Arango Fund.

It was organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art with the assistance of the Consulate of Spain in New York.

The publication is made possible through the generosity of the Lila Acheson Wallace Fund for The Metropolitan Museum of Art, established by the cofounder of Reader's Digest.

Additional support has been provided by The Peter Jay Sharp Foundation.
