Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

One of the more famous Spanish painters associated with influencing French Romantic painters, Francisco Goya was born in Fuendetodos, and took his earliest art lessons from his father, who was a master gilder.  He also studied etching with monks in Saragossa, and then in 1776, when he was age 30, went to Madrid, where he was influenced by Giovanni Tiepolo, who did lighthearted historical genre scenes in rich coloration.

In 1786, Goya became a court painter and did numerous (showing 500 of 1614 characters).
