Francisco de Goya (1746, Fuendetodos, Spain - 1828, Bordeaux, France) is an innovative Spanish Romantic painter, one of the triumvirate - including El Greco and Diego Velazquez - of great Spanish masters. Much in the art of Goya is derived from that of Velazquez, just as much in the art of the 19th-century French master Edouard Manet and the 20th-century genius Picasso is taken from Goya. Goya was initially trained in the Rococo style, but later transformed this style and created works that have as great an impact today as when they were created. Goya has been regarded both as the last of the old masters 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.

For the bold technique of his paintings, the haunting satire of his etchings, and his belief that the artist's vision is more important than tradition, Goya is often called "the grandfather of modern art". Goya began his painting career just after the late Baroque period. In expressing his thoughts and feelings frankly, as he did, he became the pioneer of new artistic tendencies which were to come to fruition in the 19th century. They represented the reaction against previous conceptions of art and the desire for a new form of expression.

Straightforward candor and honesty are present in all Goya's works.

The Black Paintings, scenes of witchcraft and war and other bizarre activities, are among the most outstanding works of the artist's late years. Executed about 1820, these paintings are now in the Prado, Madrid. Originally painted in fresco on the walls of Goya's country house and now transferred to canvas, they attest to his progressively darkening mood, possibly aggravated by an oppressive political situation in Spain that forced him to leave for France in 1824.

Francisco de Goya became one of the most influential figures in Spanish art of all time. He was also extremely important in the development of modern aesthetic sensibility, a forerunner of Romanticism, both in the content of his paintings, with their in-depth exploration of reality and references to the dream world, and in his very original technique.
