Product Description:
Goya: The Audacity of Freedom Video. Francisco Goya was a paradox, the happy recipient of royal patronage as court painter yet proponent of individual freedom. This program closely examines the struggle of Goya's contradictory desires for a life of middle-class sensibility informed by a caustic perception of the world. His works are evaluated as social critiques of the time and place in which he lived, often harsh and satirical commentaries made on a culture Goya derided as archaic and prejudiced. What emerges in this exploration of Goya's life, filmed in part in his original work space, is a persona quite different from the 19th-century romantic traditionally portrayed. (72 minutes.) Art History, Art and Photography. 1999
