Francisco Goya was a talented Spanish painter and printmaker, and is considered one of the last of the Old Masters of painting, as well as the first of the moderns.

His earlier themes of merry festivals and cartoons deligthed nobility people. He became friendly with the crown prince of Spain and he  was made the first court painter, painting portraits for the king and his family, as well as the Spanish nobility. In this pictures you can found beautiful women portraits, happy, healthy and joung girls.
But after surviving the French declaration of war on Spain, Goya suffered from a mysterious illness, which made him deaf, and affected his mental behavior and began painting a series of disturbing paintings. Then you can see deformed women and other mysterious people.
