Happy Belated Birthday to Francisco Goya

362 years and one day ago Spanish painter Goya was born. After studying under neo-classicist Francisco Bayeu y Subias he became a favorite of Spanish kings Charles III and IV. Some of his best and most haunting work is his 80 aquatint print series Disasters of War (Los desastres de la guerra).


With or Without Reason...


The Same Thing.


Why?


Bury Them and Keep Quiet.


There is something to be gained.
