Aliases: Francisco de Goya, Francesco José "de" Goya y Lucientes: Born in Spain in 1746, Francisco Goya was a world-respected artist who worked in a bold and romantic rococo style. Goya's etchings and paintings include many subversive or whimsical elements, and have often been taken as political statements. Goya served for years as Painter to the King and was Director of Painting at the Royal Academy of San Fernando, where he once studied. He is one of the last Old Masters, whose popularity extended far beyond his public civic life. Francisco Goya's paintings have influenced the work of many great painters., Image Size : 200x310 (mm), 7.87x12.20 (Inches), Platemark Size : , Paper Size : 348x447 (mm), 13.70x17.60 (Inches), Coloring: Printed in Sepia, Medium: etching, burnished aquatint, Categories: Old Masters; Views Europe Spain;.
