Francisco Goya

Inspiring Artists

The eighteenth-century Spanish artist Francisco Goya is renowned for challenging conventional notions of art and inspiring later movements such as Romanticism, Impressionism, and Surrealism. Unafraid of pushing the boundaries of tradition, Goya created scenes of human suffering as well as fantastical images such as witches and demons, though he was also a skilled portraitist and painted events such as Napoleon's 1808 invasion of Spain. Filled with paintings from every stage of Goya's career, this resource highlights why he has been such an inspiration to modern artists, especially those who use their art to express the unspeakable.
