In those years and just before his departure from Spain, he created a body of work that is little known to the public and consists of small-scale, intimate pieces, including uncommissioned portraits of friends and family, miniature paintings on ivory plaques, and numerous drawings and lithographs. These simple, bold, and brilliant works attest to the ...

Overview

Francisco Jose de Goya y Lucientes (1746-1828) had a prolific career and spent the last four years of his life in Bordeaux with other political emigres from Spain. In those years and just before his departure from Spain, he created a body of work that is little known to the public and consists of small-scale, intimate pieces, including uncommissioned portraits of friends and family, miniature paintings on ivory plaques, and numerous drawings and lithographs. These simple, bold, and brilliant works attest to the artist's continuing vitality in his old age and also offer some insight into his life during that last period in Bordeaux. They are the culminating achievement of a great artist who was, in his own words, "still learning" as he faced death.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The ten-page bibliography included here lists numerous works already written about the great Spanish court painter Francisco Jos de Goya y Lucientes. But Brown (fine arts, Inst. of Fine Arts, NYU; Velazquez: Painter and Courtier) and Galassi (curator, Frick Collection, New York; Picasso's Variations on the Masters) have produced a remarkably rich study by focusing solely on the period from Goya's exile to Bordeaux in 1824 to his death in 1828 at age 82. They demonstrate how his painterly style changed over time and discuss an unusual genre he innovated that was inspired by smears of water drops. The 51 objects featured include experimental lithographs and black crayon drawings, some depicting local life in Bordeaux, others reflecting back on Goya's Spanish experiences, and still others acting as bizarre or enigmatic expressions of the artist's imagination. A chronology is helpful to understanding how Goya's life was caught up in tumultuous Spanish and French politics. Accompanying an exhibition on view at the Frick Collection through May 14, this book is recommended for art museum, academic, and larger public libraries.-Anne Marie Lane, American Heritage Ctr.
