Notes

Abstract: This analysis argues that Spanish painter Francisco de Goya (1746-1828), uses mirrors to symbolize harmonization of subject with its true self throughout his work. To argue this thesis, the analysis strategy employs a semiotic approach by first using the etching 'Hasta La Muerte' (1794-1799), of the 'Los Caprichos' series to define the mirror as a bridge between a perceived state of being and reality and then considers Goya's modern interpretation of the classic female nude through his drawing 'Nude Woman Holding a Mirror' (1796-1797). The following section addresses the artist's intentional reference to art history and an implied mirror in his painting 'Family of Carlos IV' (1800-1801). The analysis explores the circular similarities between the series 'Allegories of Commerce, Agriculture and Industry' (1802-1804), and traditional mirror form to determine how Goya intends to represent Spanish society.
