Francisco Goya y Lucientes, 1746-1828by Janis Tomlinson
Synopses & Reviews
Francisco Goya (1746 — 1828) has been called the last of the Old Masters and the first of the Moderns. For most of his career he was court painter to the Spanish kings, yet he also produced some of the most compelling images of social unrest ever painted. Among his works are formal royal portraits and the so-called 'black paintings', intensely private images of loneliness and despair. In this beautifully illustrated and up-to-date account of all aspects of Goya's career, Janis Tomlinson attempts to explain such contradictions and to place the artist and his work in the social and political context of Spain and Europe during the period of the French Revolution and its reactionary aftermath.<P>This absorbing, thoughtful, prize-winning study is now made available to a wider audience in an attractively priced paperback edition.
Goya is sometimes called the last of the Old Masters and the first of the Moderns, and his work has left a lasting impression on avant garde artists from Manet to Picasso. This title covers all aspects of his work, at the same time setting it in its social and political context.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 313) and index.
