Goya : order & disorder by Francisco Goya( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Francisco Goya has been widely celebrated as the most important Spanish artist of the late-eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, the last of the old masters and the first of the moderns, and an astute observer of the human condition in all its complexity. The many-layered and shifting meanings of his work have made him one of the most studied artists in the world. Few, however, have made the ambitious attempt to explore his work as a painter, printmaker and draftsman across media and the timeline of his life. This book does just that, presenting a comprehensive and integrated view of Goya's most important paintings, prints, and drawings through the themes and imagery that continually challenged or preoccupied the artist. They reveal how he strove relentlessly to understand and describe human behavior and emotional states, even at their most orderly or disorderly extremes, in elegant and incisive portraits, dramatic and monumental history paintings, and series of prints and drawings of a satirical, disturbing and surreal nature. Derived from the research for the largest Goya art exhibition in North America in a quarter-century, this book takes a fresh look at one of the greatest artists in history by examining the fertile territory between the two poles that defined the range of his boundlessly creative personality."--Book jacket
Goya : the portraits by Francisco Goya( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Francisco de Goya y Lucientes (1746-1828) was one of the greatest portraitists of his time. The first large-scale book devoted to the topic, this handsome volume features portraits that shed light on Goya and his subjects, as well as on the politically turbulent and culturally dynamic era in which they lived. Whether portraying royalty, philosophers, military men, or friends, these works are memorable both for the insight they provide into the relationship between artist and sitter, and for their penetrating psychological depth. Xavier Bray traces Goya's career from his beginnings at the Madrid court of Charles III to his final years in Bordeaux, played out against the backdrop of war with France and the social, political, and cultural shift of the Enlightenment. More than 60 remarkable portraits, including drawings and miniatures, reveal the full range of Goya's technical and stylistic achievements, while also depicting sitters with a previously unparalleled humanity. His break with traditional, late-18th-century conventions allowed him to achieve a new modernity in portraiture that paved the way for artists such as Matisse and Picasso

Bartolomé Esteban Murillo (1617-1682) : dibujos : catálogo razonado by Manuela Mena( Book )

7 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bartolomé Esteban Murillo (1617-1682) Dibujos. Catálogo razonado plasma la exhaustiva investigación llevada a cabo por la Dra. Manuela Mena Marqués. Esta obra constituye un hito fundamental para avanzar con mayor seguridad en el conocimiento de Murillo, uno de los grandes artistas de nuestro Siglo de Oro. Algo más de un centenar de dibujos llegados a nuestros días constituyen un conjunto escaso de su producción si se compara con la riqueza de su pintura que tiene, sin embargo, un valor excepcional para el estudio del maestro, de la identificación de autorías y de la cronología de sus obras."--Publisher's website

Goya : la Familia de Carlos IV by Francisco Goya( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in Spanish and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Este nuevo libro, una vez restaurado el cuadro, gracias al patrocinio de la Fundación Winterthur, está compuesto por siete ensayos coordinados por Manuela Mena, jefa de conservación de pintura del Siglo XVIII del Museo del Prado. Esta obra de divulgación ha contado con los conocimientos de otros seis técnicos y especialistas. Una de sus principales descubrimientos consiste en identificar el contenido de uno de los cuadros del fondo del retrato que hasta ahora permanecía oculto y que se venía atribuyendo a Lot emborrachado por sus hijas. Esta teoría reforzaba la hipótesis de que Goya quiso satirizar de esta forma los presuntos desmanes sentimentales de la reina Mª Luisa. Sin embargo, Manuela Mena sostiene en este nuevo libro que la escena recoge el episodio mitológico de Hércules y Onfale, con lo que la intención del maestro aragonés habría sido la de subrayar la supuesta descendencia del dios griego de la familia real española. Asimsimo, el libro indica que Goya no satirizó ni juzgó a sus modelos, sino que sencillamente los reflejó con gran veracidad naturalista y psicológica
