Fantastic visions and nightmares came readily to Goya's mind after he witnessed the horrors of the war between France and Spain. My fantastic vision saw Goya presenting slides of his work to the Madrid Art Association. The nightmare, familiar to artists who have shown slides of their precious creations in similar circumstances, is that the slides are disorganized, out of order, upside down, or, in this extreme case, bunched up in the same slot in the projector. The result is like a collage, featuring most prominently a combination of his two notorious paintings of the Duchess of Alba, one nude and the other clothed.
