Goya: The World of Art Library

Biography of Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes (30 March 1746 – 16 April 1828), a Spanish romantic painter and printmaker regarded both as the last of the Old Masters and as the first of the moderns. Goya was a court painter to the Spanish Crown, and through his works was both a commentator on and chronicler of his era. The subversive and imaginative element in his art, as well as his bold handling of paint, provided a model for the work of later generations of artists, notably Manet and Picasso.

The book is structured in three main parts, 'Obscurity (1746–1792)', 'High Noon (1792–1808)' and 'Chaos, Solitude and Glory (1808–1828)'. Colour illustrations throughout.
