About This Item

New York: Alfred A. Knopf. Fine in Near Fine dj. 2003. First Edition. Hardcover. [book is flawless; jacket unblemished except for one faint surface-scratch on front panel (that you'd never have noticed if I hadn't pointed it out to you)]. (color and B&W art reproductions) Critical biography of "one of art history's most compelling, enigmatic, and important figures, Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes, [whose] life and work bridged the transition from the eighteenth-century reign of the old masters to the early days of the nineteenth-century moderns. With his salient passion for the artist and the art, [the author] brings Goya vividly to life through dazzling analysis of a vast breadth of his work." .
