Goya The Third of May

Francisco de Goya. Napolean Bonaparte intervened in Spain in 1808. Before the conflict, one of Goya's interested was representing humankinds' vanity, stupidity, and folly. After the conflict, he turned to representing the horrors of war. But, Goya was a magnificent artist, not one to be pigeon-holed, for "his scope and variety, of both subject matter and form place him beyond any definition." (Art Through the Ages. Fifth Edition. (1970) New York: Harcourt, Brace & World, Inc.
