Francisco Goya y Lucientes created "Los Desastres de la Guerra," a series of etchings, in response to the Napoleonic invasion of Spain. Rather than firsthand accounts, these etchings present an extended meditation on the tragedy of war in its many aspects, from corpses strewn on the field of battle and scenes of combat and torture to the impact of armed conflict on civilians of all ages.

Curated by Tomlinson, the exhibition is a collaboration of the University Museums and the Pomona College Museum of Art. It is circulated by Pomona College Museum of Art.

The gallery reception will be held from 6-8 p.m. Those who plan to attend are asked to RSVP by calling 302-831-8037 or sending email to
