Description

An intimate account of the life of Francisco de Goya from 1792 when he was 47 and contracted a serious illness which left him totally deaf. Through a time of political turmoil, war, violence and confusion, Goya continued to work, transforming the scenes he witnessed into his visionary paintings, drawings and etchings. Also detailed are Goya's lovers - the Duchess of Alba and Leocadia who was with him at the end. This is ultimately a tale of the ferocious energy, passion and genius of this great artist.

Author Biography

Julia Blackburn is the author of three books of non-fiction, Charles Waterton, The Emperor's Last Island and Daisy Bates in the Desert, and two novels, The Book of Colour and The Leper's Companions, both of which were shortlisted for the Orange Prize.
