The diseased face

Florencio Monje (Spain)

Time: 12:00 - 13:00
Room: DALI (PV5)
Language: Spanish
Chair(s): Miguel Angel López-Andrade (Spain)

Learning Objectives

  • > To show some paintings and the relationship with facial diseases
  • > To learn more about some painters and their paintings
  • > To remember some conditions that are unusual to see in the present day


In a previous publication (Goya’s painting and dentofacial deformities) we approached the pictorial-vital trajectory of Francisco de Goya with curiosity, as a background to analyze facial deformities in the foreground. Our current proposal, still within the framework of the constant dialogue between painting and disease, is far more ambitious. It is none    other than trying to explain the variety of facial deformities through the study of fifty paintings representative of different periods and stylistic challenges, chosen as usual, under the subjective premise of observation as “déformation professionnelle”.
