The starting point for this biography was Robert Hughes's first encounter with Goya's etchings as a student in Australia. What made it possible, he wondered, for an 18th-century Spanish artist to convey despair, loneliness, anxiety and loss to a young man two centuries and half a world away. The book charts Goya's career, describing his entire painted and graphic oeuvre within its historical context, and revealing an artist committed to documenting his world with an unflinching and compassionate eye.
