The second of three programmes by LAWRENCE GOWING. A painter's view of working methods and common ground in work by three great artists:
Bruegel, Goya, Matisse. Goya
Looking Both Ways
Tonight's film, shot mainly in Spain, explores paintings by Francisco Goya (1746-1828) who was bom in Fuendetodos, a small isolated village in the heart of Aragon, and died aged 82 in self-imposed exile in Bordeaux.
'Goya showed the inhabitants of the mind to be as real as anything in the other real world of sight and sense.'
Sir Lawrence Gowing looks at those paintings in the Prado Museum, Madrid which he sees as landmarks in Goya's 'splendid and terrible career'. They include The Parasol, his early sun-bathed design for a tapestry; The Shootings of 3rd May, the great icon of Spanish insurgence; and so-called black paintings such as Saturn Devouring One of His Children with which he covered the walls of his own home.
