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 French Romantic painters, to 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. This evolution reflects the darkening of his temper. Near the end of his life, he became reclusive and produced frightening and obscure paintings of insanity, madness, and fantasy. The style of these Black Paintings prefigure the expressionist movement. Goya's work extended over a period of more than 60 years (he draw and paint until his 82nd year). The importance of this factor is evident between his attitude towards life in his youth, when he accepted the world as it was quite happily, in his manhood when he began to criticise it, and in his old age when he became embittered and disillusioned with people and society, as the world changed completely during his lifetime.
