Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes
(30 March 1746 – 16 April 1828)
An Aragonese Spanish painter and printmaker. Goya was a court painter to the Spanish Crown and a chronicler of history. He has been regarded both as the last of the Old Masters ( a term for a European painter of skill who worked before about 1800, or a painting by such a painter ) and as the first of the moderns.
The subversive and subjective element in his art, as well as his bold handling of paint, provided a model for the work of later generations of artists, notably Manet and Picasso.
