Overview

Courtier and Old Master portraitist, harsh social critic, and modern Expressionist—perhaps no artist personifies Madrid at the crossroads of the 18th and 19th centuries more than Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes. Arriving in Madrid to work at the Royal Tapestry Factory in 1775, Goya served the Bourbon court and Madrid society. This book features detailed walking tours of Madrid and Zaragoza where the artist lived, loved and labored. Readers will discover the sights and stories behind such an iconic work like "The 3rd of May, 1808."
