this is bad

The exhibition focuses on one of the central works of the museum collection, Richard Mortensen’s painting Esto es malo (This is bad). The work was created in 1959 as a paraphrase of the Spanish artist Francisco Goya’s etching of the same name, from his series The Disasters of War (1810-20).
