Goya is regarded to be one of the greatest portrait painters of all time. His art is about Spain and its obsessions. He is memorable because his works are never judgmental and always beautiful to look at. His paintings give the viewer the feeling that he is being observed and examined by them just as the viewer is looking at the paintings. As he grew older, Goya spent more time creating scenes of fantasy and terror.
