Francisco Goya, 1772

religious painting

One of Goya’s earlier works, he painted this fresco on the ceiling of the Basilica in the small town of Zaragoza, Spain. He received the commission to paint the ceiling upon returning from his trip abroad to Italy as an art student. As a relatively unknown painter at the time, he received 10,000 reales less than the other, more well known artists who contributed to paintings in the Basilica, but it was to his benefit, as it afforded him an audience for his work, which was soon to be the Spanish royal family and nobility.
