For next week, Jan. 30 and Feb. 1, read Francis Connelly’s Modern Art and the Grotesque; I uploaded it to the Readings page. Then look at Dix’s War etching portfolio from 1924, and Goya’s etchings “Disastres de la Guerra” and pick one work from each portfolio that exemplifies the grotesque. Post images of the two prints you picked to the blog and be prepared to explain how exactly they are grotesque, using Connelly’s definitions.
Here is a link to good reproductions of Goya’s prints.
