Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes (1746 – 1828) was a Spanish romantic painter and printmaker regarded both as the last of the Old Masters and as the first of the moderns. The subversive and imaginative element in his art, as well as his bold handling of paint, provided a model for the work of later generations of artists, from expressionist, modernist and most notably Manet and Picasso.

Throughout his career, Goya produced an enormous oeuvre of paintings, prints, and drawings whose content and tone can be patriotic or subversive, spiritual or satiric, grave or humorous, and anything in between. His themes range from merry festivals for tapestry, draft cartoons, to scenes of war and corpses.

The hundreds of extant drawings by his hand include both preparatory sheets for works in other media and independent drawings of diverse subjects executed primarily in ink and wash and lithographic crayon. The drawings, are sometimes characterized as a form of talking to himself. They present the wide spectrum of subjects he treated, including critiques of the monastic orders and the nobility, interactions between the sexes, depictions of visions and nightmares, and allusions to the consequences of war and political oppression.

Goya also published numerous etchings and aquatints, being his most famous series Los Caprichos, The Disasters of War, Los Disparates and Tauromaquia.

They reflect his dark visions of, as himself described, “the sleep of reason produces monsters”, the horror and destruction of war, and Goya’s enigmatic and fantastical interior world.
