GOYA – THE BLACK PAINTINGS

The Black Paintings is the name given to a group of fourteen paintings by Francisco Goya from the later years of his life, likely between 1819 and 1823. They portray intense, haunting themes, reflective of both his fear of insanity and his bleak outlook on humanity.
The paintings originally were painted as murals on the walls of Goya’s house, later being hacked off the walls and attached to canvas.
