Showcase: Francisco Goya

Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes was a Spanish romantic painter and printmaker, often considered to be the most important Spanish artist of the 18th century, the last of the Old Masters and the first of the moderns. I’d say he was one of the best artists to reveal the darkness that resides in our souls. All that is greedy and wrong with human nature.

  1. The poet Baudelaire said of Goya, that he brings back to painting, the feeling that delights in the terrible. As we can see in ‘Saturn devouring one of his sons’; a fresco transferred to canvas in 1820, as well as ‘the 3rd of May’ which you’ve presented above. Cool dude.
