Goya

Ca. 1795. Bronze Room 036

Depicted when he was Director of Painting of the Real Academia de San Fernando, Goya is shown with the firm gaze of a man of the Enlightenment. The Academia has the original of this bust, acquired from the painter’s grandson Mariano Goya in 1858. Merchi arrived in Spain from Paris after the French Revolution and became court sculptor to Charles IV.
