Goya by Robert Hughes( Book )
6 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 2,074 libraries worldwide
Publisher's description: Robert Hughes, who has stunned us with comprehensive works on subjects as sweeping and complex as the history of Australia (The Fatal Shore), the modern art movement (The Shock of the New), the nature of American art (American Visions), and the nature of America itself as seen through its art (The Culture of Complaint), now turns his renowned critical eye to one of art history's most compelling, enigmatic, and important figures, Francisco Jos ̌de Goya y Lucientes. With characteristic critical fervor and sure-eyed insight, Hughes brings us the story of an artist whose life and work bridged the transition from the eighteenth-century reign of the old masters to the early days of the nineteenth-century moderns. With his salient passion for the artist and the art, Hughes brings Goya vividly to life through dazzling analysis of a vast breadth of his work. Building upon the historical evidence that exists, Hughes tracks Goya's development, as man and artist, without missing a beat, from the early works commissioned by the Church, through his long, productive, and tempestuous career at court, to the darkly sinister and cryptic work he did at the end of his life. In a work that is at once interpretive biography and cultural epic, Hughes grounds Goya firmly in the context of his time, taking us on a wild romp through Spanish history; from the brutality and easy violence of street life to the fiery terrors of the Holy Inquisition to the grave realities of war, Hughes shows us in vibrant detail the cultural forces that shaped Goya's work. Underlying the exhaustive, critical analysis and the rich historical background is Hughes's own intimately personal relationship to his subject. This is a book informed not only by lifelong love and study, but by his own recent experiences of mortality and death. As such this is a uniquely moving and human book; with the same relentless and fearless intelligence he has brought to every subject he has ever tackled, Hughes here transcends biography to bring us a rich and fiercely brave book about art and life, love and rage, impotence and death. This is one genius writing at full capacity about another₇and the result is truly spectacular

Goya : drawings from his private albums by Juliet Wilson Bareau( Book )
11 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 671 libraries worldwide
"Francisco Goya (1746-1828) is the first truly modern artist, whose penetrating vision of humanity is as relevant today as it was revolutionary in his own time. His most innovative works were created after a near-fatal illness that left him profoundly deaf at the age of forty-seven. Alongside a prodigious output in paintings and prints, he expressed his most private thoughts and feelings in eight remarkable albums of drawings. Made over a period of thirty years, the albums were split up after his death; their pages are now scattered in public and private collections throughout the world." "The album drawings reveal Goya's astonishing powers of invention and observation. They include amazing flights of fantasy, nightmare and biting satire, and show the artist's imagination at work on a vast range of subjects - the pageant of carnival and Holy Week, the upheavals of war, images of childhood and old age, witches and charlatans - in a reflection, both violent and tender, of the world around him." "In this book, Juliet Wilson-Bareau brings together 117 of the finest album drawings. They are shown here for the first time as full-page colour reproductions, all save the largest album as actual-size facsimiles. The drawings are accompanied by extensive commentaries, together with an introductory essay and texts on each of the albums."--Jacket
Goya : to every story there belongs another by Werner Hofmann( Book )
13 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in German and English and held by 636 libraries worldwide
"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

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 333 libraries worldwide
"This book provides a detailed analysis of Francisco Goya's Los Caprichos, a series of eighty etchings published in 1799, by examining the artistic principles that animate these remarkable images and considering the complex way they relate to the particular historical moment in which the prints were created and first received. In discussing the perceptual tensions in Los Caprichos, Andrew Schulz reevaluates the relationship between Goya's etchings and the Spanish Enlightenment and reconsiders Goya's career during the 1780s and 1790s."--BOOK JACKET

Goya by José Gudiol( Book )
10 editions published between 1984 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 252 libraries worldwide
"During the course of his life, Goya straddled two different periods and two different worlds - the Rococo of affectation and excess, and the early period of Romanticism, which looked ahead to Expressionism - and is without questions one of the key figures in the genesis of European contemporary art. His vision of humankind - with all its vices and pretensions, suffering and aspirations - was so penetrating that it remains as incisive today as it was revolutionary in how own times." "This book covers Goya's entire career, from his cartoons for tapestries and his court paintings to his large frescos, series of engravings and his formally and technically most experimental works, pieces that were not done to commission and which heralded new approaches to art."--BOOK JACKET
