Abstract:

"The present volume is Malraux's only full-length study of a single artist and his most personal book. It deals with a painter who during the past thirty years has gradually taken his place as one of the greatest artists of the nineteenth century. Text and illustrations of the present volume show that Goya, a worthy follower of Bosch and Bruegel, was not only the most powerful painter of his own romantic age, but also fore-shadowed the whole of modern art."--book jacket.
