Susann Waldmann investigates these and other events by examining various contemporary documents, letters from Goya to his friends, and numerous anecdotes, unfolding a sensational turn of events. A fascinating text accompanied by excellent reproductions of Goya's well known paintings and drawings. A very quick and interesting read about the love affair between Francisco Goya and the Duchess of Alba, a collector of lovers, an activity apparently not uncommon among the nobility of Spain in the late 18th and early 19th centuries - and, one can imagine, in many other times and places.

This book is really very interesting. The angle the author takes on Goya's works is refreshing as the focus these days tends to be his etchings of war scenes. The text is well written and the paintings are gorgeous. 13 people found this helpful.

The story of the relationship between Goya and the Duchess of Alba is shrouded in mystery and secrecy, and has captured the imaginations of authors since the middle of the 19th century.

It is not only Goya's artistic crisis, which began with his traumatic illness in 1792-93 in Cadiz, and the creation of his famous "Caprichos" series, but also his affair with the Duchess of Alba that make the period in Goya's life between 1790 and 1800 so intriguing. But what do we know about this love affair, which continues to fascinate us today? Did it actually take place or was it a rumour?

Charles III died in 1788 and his successor, Charles IV, promoted Goya to be court painter

Charles III died in 1788 and his successor, Charles IV, promoted Goya to be court painter. Goya, presumably keen to display his absolute powers, produced this portrait of the king as hunter. Here the marchioness, with her hand on a lute, is portraying a classical muse. This reproduction smooths out the rough brush strokes and makes the silk dress and fabric of the couch look well done; they look a lot less so in real life. Her face is as blankly expressionless, as bereft of life, as the Duchess of Alba’s.

The story of the relationship between Goya and the Duchess of Alba is shrouded in mystery and secrecy, and has captured the imaginations of authors since the middle of the 19th century. It is not only Goya's artistic crisis, which began with his traumatic illness in 1792-93 in Cadiz, and the creation of his famous "Caprichos" series , but also his affair with the Duchess of Alba that make the period in Goya's life between 1790 and 1800 so intriguing. But what do we know about this love affair, which continues to fascinate us today? Did it actually take place or was it a rumour? And what sort of woman was the Duchess of Alba, who, according to a romatic version of the story, nearly drove Goya out of his senses. We would know very litle about this woman today had she not encounterted Francisco de Goya. In this book the author investigates these and other events by examining various contemporary documents, letters from Goya to his friends, and numerous anecdotes, unfolding a sensational turn of events full of suspense.

Good read.

The Apotheoses of Lacspor
This book is really very interesting. The angle the author takes on Goya's works is refreshing as the focus these days tends to be his etchings of war scenes. The text is well written and the paintings are gorgeous. Anyone interested in the story of a painter living in a turbulent time, a man tangled up in all sorts of intrigues, as well as an artist without compare would love this book!

Agarus
This book collects details from a range of sources, most of them contemporary, about the relationship between Goya and the Duchess of Alba. The text focuses on the few but important years of Goya’s life when he was close with the Duchess, her influence on his work and what evidence there is that they may or may not have had a physical relationship. The text is artfully succinct, realistic, and balanced where many others have simply assumed a torrid romance. More important perhaps is the influence the Duchess of Alba cast over Goya’s work, which is thoughtfully explored here. The text is not long, but amply covers their relationship, more thoroughly than most other sources.

The book itself is a fine edition, with high-quality binding, unusually thick, smooth pages and numerous illustrations. A very worthwhile find.
