When asked who he considered an importance, Picasso only mentioned Goya (1746-1828). But, his extremely influence has arrived to a lot of modern and contemporary painters, such as Manet, the Expressionist movement on early twentieth-century and, most recently, Francis Bacon, and Sigmar Polke. As painter of the Spanish Court, he created series of tapestry cartoons, wallpaintings, and individuals and group portraits, but, after his serious illnes in late 1792, he starts an important body of uncommissioned works that introduces new elements which greatly enhance their expressive potential. This book, wrote by José Gudiol, one of the most renowed specialist in Spanish paintings, is focuses on goya s, profoundly disturbing imagery, and demonstrates that his modernity derives from his lifelong investigation of what lies behind the world of appearances and convention.
