Francisco Goya, The Sleep of Reason Brings Forth Monsters
Turn to the etching on page 346 in our textbook by Francisco Goya. The original caption of the artwork reads:
"Imagination abandoned by reason produces impossible monsters; united with her, she is the mother of the arts and the source of their wonders."
Based upon your understanding of the Enlightenment and Romanticism, how do you interpret this caption? How do the image and the caption reflect upon the critique that Romantic artists directed at the Enlightenment?
Think of your audience for this posting as students new to the subject. Use other art works covered in the lecture or in the textbook (literature, music, painting, etc.) to illustrate or support your argument.
