Notes

Abstract: This analysis covers the influences of royal patronage and liberal ideas on the artwork of celebrated Spanish artist, Francisco de Goya y Lucientes in the context of the eighteenth-century Spanish, socio-political evolution, society including the Bourbon Reforms and the influx of Enlightenment philosophy. We argue that under the patronage of the Royal Tapestry Factory, Francisco de Goya showed a romanticized depiction of the working class in the Tapestry Cartoons while criticizing class relations in his personal artwork. The analysis will first examine Goya's idealized depiction of workers in the Tapestry Cartoons in relation to the visual tradition. Then discuss Goya's association with Enlightenment liberals as evidence for his empathy with the working class. Lastly, the analysis covers Marxist and semiotic analysis to examine Goya's depictions, in his personal artwork, of struggles in the working class and the wrongdoing of the nobility.
