The regional savings bank Ibercaja is one of northern Spain’s most active patrons of the arts. This small museum, which augments several Ibercaja exhibition spaces in Zaragoza, fills a marvelous Renaissance home in the middle of the city. The upper-floor galleries are arranged chronologically. The first floor features mostly Spanish paintings from the 15th to 18th centuries, including Pedro Berreguete’s El Salvador. A few excellent Goya paintings, including a self-portrait, are highlights of the Sala Dorada on the mezzanine, while the low-lit second floor displays five Goya etching series, including Los Caprichos and the wrenching Los Desastres de la Guerra. The third floor is devoted to 19th- and 20th-century paintings and sculptures.
