Overview

Francisco Goya y Lucientes (1746-1828) was in his lifetime the foremost painter in Spain, and his reputation has remained undimmed ever since. For most of his career he painted for the Spanish Court, providing glittering portraits and tapestry designs for the royal palaces. Yet he also painted and etched some of the most compelling images of social unrest and personal alienation ever created, leaving a lasting impression on avant-garde artists from Manet to Picasso as well as capturing the popular imagination. In this authoritative, up-to-date and beautifully illustrated survey of Goya's career, Janis Tomlinson explores the dichotomy that has led the artist to be called the last of the Old Masters and the first of the Moderns. She looks at the complete range of his output of oil paintings, frescoes, drawings and prints, placing Goya's life and work in the social and political context of the turbulent times through which he lived. In doing so she has written a book that does justice to the achievement of one of Europe's greatest artists.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Goya lived in turbulent times, which he reflected in his art with passionate strength and subtle intellect. The most famous and well-regarded Spanish painter of his day, Goya's work stretched beyond the flattering royal portraits that made him rich to capture the struggles of social unrest, war, and religious tyranny that typified life in 18th- and early 19th-century Spain. Columbia University art historian Janis Tomlinson relates the story of Goya and his world by discussing the developmental phases of his six-decade career, and placing each work of art in its personal and historical context.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Modern interpretations of Goya as a political artist, proto-Romantic rebel, fantasist or realist capture partial truths about the protean Spanish painter, suggests Columbia University art history professor Tomlinson in this meticulous, sumptuously illustrated study featuring 210 color and 70 black-and-white plates. By viewing Goya's career as a lifelong experiment with image-making, she shows how his art became a self-perpetuating process as his works fed off one another. Tomlinson argues unpersuasively that Goya's royal portraits, usually seen as savage satires, actually evince sympathy for his often homely or awkward subjects. She is more successful in elucidating his kaleidoscopic view of evil in the Los Caprichos etchings, his innovative small-scale oils and his investigations of irrationality and destructiveness in scenes of madhouses, war, the Inquisition and popular spectacles.
