Francisco JosÃ© de Goya y Lucientes (1746Â–1828) spent the last four years of his life living in Bordeaux with other political Ã©migrÃ©s from Spain and South America. In those years he created small-scale, intimate pieces, including uncommissioned portraits of friends and family, miniature paintings on ivory plaques, and numerous drawings and lithographs. These works attest to the artistâ€™s continuing vitality in his old age and also offer insight into his life in Bordeaux.This beautiful book presents fifty-one key works from Goyaâ€™s late period along with two essays that illuminate his works of that time. Jonathan Brown retells the story of Goyaâ€™s difficult years in exile when he nevertheless continued to make art, experimenting with the new medium of lithography, inventing a technique of miniature painting on ivory, and painting remarkable portraits of friends and supporters. Susan Grace Galassi describes the rich historical and cultural milieu of Bordeaux and establishes a biographical context and sense of place that underscore the triumph of Goyaâ€™s final achievement.
