Goya

1902. Bronze. Not on display

Here, the artist proposes a commemorative bust of the illustrious painter. The work is based on a portrait of Goya as an old man (P864) painted by Vicente López in 1826. The resultant work has clear links to the statue of Goya that stands in front of the Prado Museum building´s north façade (the “Puerta de Goya” or “Goya Entrance)”.
