Francis Goya was a pintor del rey (painter to the king) to the three rulers of Spain. He was a court painter and a chronicler of history. He was famous for his skills and expertise in both impressionist and expressionist painting. He is known for his creativity having a broad range of subjects and artistic styles. He developed a method of loose, expressive brushwork that anticipated the impressionist and expressionist movements.
He was said to be an artist ahead of his time. He created unconventional works that were full of personality – showing a critical fascination with violence and brutality.
Goya married Francisco Bayeu’s sister. This marriage was the gateway to this membership to the Royal Academy of Fine Art. This membership made him more fulfilled as an artist because he was given tons of opportunities that he never thought of achieving. He was invited to travel from one place to another because of his painting prowess.
