Discoveries: Goya (Discoveries) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Francisco Goya was privileged to witness the entire gamut of daily life in Spain at the end of the 18th and beginning of the 19th centuries: the celebrations, traditions, hopes--and the evils, from decadence at court to the horrors of war. In Goya's art, kings and bullfighters, princesses and courtesans, murderers and victims all come alive.
