Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes (1746 – 1828)
History Goya was a court painter to the Spanish Crown, a chronicler of history. In his early years he was mostly influenced by Velazquez. He has been regarded both as the last of the old masters and as the first of the moderns. He painted for these kings: Carlos III, Carlos IV, & Ferdinand VII.
Influenced some major artists, notably Manet and Picasso. He lived through the political dysfunction of changing leadership in Spain, the revival of the Inquisition, military occupation of Spain by France, and the installment of Napoleon's brother Joseph Bonaparte as the King of Spain.
Goya, as did many others, left the country in a search for stability. Though he would return on trips to the Spain he had lived in for most of his eighty-some years, Goya died an exile in Bordeaux, France. 2 types of art –Italian Realism (everyday life) –Black Paintings (Satirical) –a loathing for the weaknesses and the proud cruelties of “evil men”
