Notes

Abstract: This research proves that the painting of Francisco de Goya (1746-1828) from 1800 ('The Cannibals), and his paintings from 1820-1823 (The Black Paintings, 'Judith,' and 'Saturn,' and Miniature, 'Judith') represent changing ideas on decapitation of a monarch. First, one must look at representations of decapitations before the turn of the 19th century with focus on the French Revolution and Louis XVI. Then one needs to compare the early depictions with those twenty years later under the rule of Fernando VII in Spain when decapitation is represented in a new light through the works of Goya. The research strategy employs semiotics to determine the change in the representation of decapitation in relation to the King and his rule.
