Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes (30 March 174616 April 1828) was a Spanish painter and printmaker. He was a court painter to the Spanish Crown and a chronicler of history. Goya has been regarded both as the last of the old masters and as the first of the moderns. The subversive and subjective element in his art as well as his bold handling of paint provided a model for the work of later generations of artists, notably Édouard Manet and Pablo Picasso.
