Abstract:

"Werner Hofmann places Goya's paintings, drawings and prints in an historical context, revealing the specific character of each phase of the artist's life and work. He discusses 'the glory and the pain of faith' evinced by Goya's early work, the artist's parabolic representation of the threat posed by the French Revolution, his dramatic documentation of the French occupation of Spain, his variations on cruelty in the Horrors of War etchings, and the faith in art apparent in his late work. Hofmann also relates the artist and his work to contemporary intellectual developments, drawing comparisons with writers, critics and philosophers from Goethe to William Blake and the Marquis de Sade."--BOOK JACKET.
