Goya, by Robert Hughes

I have to admit to having only the most elementary appreciation of the visual arts but when I lived in Madrid many years ago I used to visit the Prado from time to time, and it was always Goya’s work that produced the strongest impression on me there - his mysterious and enigmatic sketches rather than the large-scale paintings, I think. So when I was abroad recently I took Robert Hughes’s biography of Goya with me to read on my travels and was glad I did. It seemed particularly appropriate to read about Goya and to look at his etchings called Los desastres de la guerra in view of the events that were, and are, occurring in Britain at the time. Read the review.
