Product Description:
The Third of May 1808. “It’s the revenge of power on those that dare to challenge it.” So begins this program on Goya’s haunting painting of defiance and despair, The Third of May 1808. The video keenly conveys the circumstances of the Spanish uprising against the French, relates Goya’s deafness to his darkening artistic vision, examines Goya’s painting technique, analyzes The Third of May’s symbolism, illustrates the painting’s influence on both the art world and society in general, and comments on its prescience in prefiguring the horrors of future atrocities. The painting’s companion, The Second of May 1808, is also discussed, as are Goya’s engravings The Disasters of War and “the black paintings.” A BBCW Production. (50 minutes).
