NEW! This is Goya

Modern art begins with Goya. He was the first to create works of art for their own sake, and he lived in a time of incredible cultural and social dynamism when the old concepts of social hierarchy were being shaken by the new concept of equality for all.

Against this epic canvas, Goya painted his own observations of humanity, transforming his youthful images of gaily dancing peasants into his mature, penetrating studies of human suffering, despair, perseverance, and redemption.

Goya's art rises above the chaos of his times, and signals the real revolution of personal expression and independent spirit that would be the generative force behind the modernist movement in art.

This is Goya provides a clear, accessible introduction to this famous artist. The richly illustrated volume incorporates original drawings and Goya's own work with informative text to engage and educate readers.

This title is appropriate for artists ages 14 and up.
