Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

A portrait of King Carlos IV (1784-1819) wearing red velvet and decorated with the Golden Fleece, on a background of curtains that partially hide a crown at the right edge of the composition. This work may have been made shortly after the Monarch took the throne, as he still wears the sash of Carlos III (1716-1788), whose design was specified on 24 October 1772. Its combination of colors was modif

Goya never actually painted the cartoon for this scene, which is one of his masterpieces, and the most popular of a series intended for the bedroom of the infantas in Madrid's El Pardo Palace. The project was suspended following the death of Carlos III. Here, the painter manages to capture the sensation of life and the hustle and bustle of a crowd sitting in the meadow. The landscape opens onto th

This is a preparatory sketch for the painting that adorns one of the altars at the Sacristy of Toledo Cathedral. Here, Goya´s manner of working is visible: rapid and energetic brushstrokes creat

Goya’s Album C exemplifies the complexity of his work. Made during the Peninsular War and the posterior repression under the reign of Ferdinand VII, it addresses subjects linked to many facets of that period. Other authors believe this album extends through the years of the Liberal Triennium (1820-23), as they see a relation between some of its drawings and the joy associated with the restoration

The title of his drawings carries over from the previous drawing of the series, entitled The Daring of Martincho in the Ring at Saragossa. Martincho rose to fame with his daring passes. This composition is included among the ones dedicated to the practices of the bullfighters of the Navarro-Aragonese school. The confrontation between the bull and the bullfighter constitutes one of the highlights o

In this series of prints executed between 1810 and 1814 Goya offers a critical and personal vision of the consequences of the Spanish Peninsular War (1808-14) that is remote from the propagandistic images produced by his contemporaries. Through his etchings the artist condemned the irrationality of war and the brutality of both sides, which inevitably resulted in suffering, pain and death. The ser

The last of the albums produced in Bordeaux offers a succession of untitled scenes in which an apparent representation of reality is combined with fantasy. This woman, covered with a mantle, armed with a sword and shield, and flying on the back of a great bat, recalls the scenes of witchcraft and madness depicted in the Caprichos, as well as the evil monster that populated the Disasters series. Th

Execution scenes constitute one of the most outstanding thematic groups in the series. The significant number of prints depicting different versions of this form of repression and extreme violence—Disasters 14, 15, 26, 28, 29, 31 and 39—includes some of the most impressive in terms of expressivity and formal perfection. Viewed as a group, they offer a broad panorama of the terrible diversity of re
