Note: This book is part of a series of capsule histories of artists and artistic subject matters, produced based on works at the Bridgeman Art Library (UK).
The book begins with a history of Goya. His art history, his family history (which became intertwined). The remainder of the book repeats that information through the paintings. His initial paintings of tapestry cartoons and his work for the court, becoming a court painter. The wonderful part of the book is that you can really see the differences in his work over time. You can see how his health, and the world around him affected his paintings. Even though he did do some work for the Spanish government, what he did on his own becomes a map of the time period. I love this book and this series. I plan to read everything. ( )
