Goya: A Portrait of the Artist

Janis Tomlinson draws on a wide range of documentation --including letters, court documents, and a sketchbook used by Goya in the early years of his career—to provide a nuanced portrait of a gifted painter and printmaker whose art is synonymous with compelling images of the people, events, and social transformation that defined his life and era.

From El Greco to Goya: Painting in Spain 1561-1828

This book opens with the magnificent monastery palace of Philip II at the Escorial and ends with the death of Goya in 1828. In between, Tomlinson introduces painting in Spain by regions, before turning to painting at the Habsburg court of Madrid, before following its transformations under the Bourbon dynasty, the prologue for the work of Goya.

Goya in the Twilight of Enlightenment

In this book Tomlinson offers a fresh and innovative interpretation of the major paintings of Goya's mid-career, disentangling the historic Goya from the romanticized Goya and examining key works in relation to their ideological, social, and artistic context.
