This book is incredible! The text that accompanies the gorgeous images manages to avoid stolid, dry, typical museum-like descriptions and bland historical references and instead offers a fascinating and compelling analysis of Goya's artistic developments, and the epochal movements of events and circumstances which shaped, and in terms of artistic innovation were shaped by, Goya's work. I did not expect this book to have the impact it did. This could easily be used as core material in a course on Goya and/or the development of Modern art. Above all, this book reveals just how quintessential Goya is to Modern art, and in an engaging way that surpasses most books on the subject of Goya and of the movement of Modern art.
