Portrait of Dona Isabel de Porcel by Francisco Goya Framed Hand Painted Oil on Canvas
- Style #
- Hand painted oil reproduction of famous painting, Portrait of Dona Isabel de Porcel , by Francisco Goya. The painting was created around 1805 and depicts Isabel Porcel, second wife to Antonio Porcel, Goyas friend. Today the painting has been carefully recreated detail-by-detail, color-by-color to near perfection. Francisco Jose de Goya y Lucientes (1746 - 1828) was a Spanish romantic painter and printmaker regarded both as the last of the Old Masters and the first of the moderns. Goya was court painter to the Spanish Crown; throughout the Peninsular War he remained in Madrid, where he painted the portrait of Joseph Bonaparte, pretender to the Spanish throne, and documented the war in the masterpiece of studied ambiguity known as the Desastres de la Guerra. His thematic range extended from merry festivals for tapestries, draft cartoons, to scenes of war and human debasement. This evolution reflects the darkening of his temper. Modern physicians suspect that the lead in his pigments poisoned him and caused his deafness after 1792. Near the end of his life, he became reclusive and produced frightening and obscure paintings of insanity, madness, and fantasy, while the style of the Black Paintings prefigures the expressionist movement. Through his works he was both a commentator on and chronicler of his era. The subversive imaginative element in his art, as well as his bold handling of paint, provided a model for the work of artists of later generations, notably Manet, Picasso and Francis Bacon.
