Portraits by Goya
To coincide with the National Gallery exhibition 'Goya: The Portraits' which runs in London in October from 7 October 2015 to 10 January 2016, we take a look at portraits painted by one of Spain's most renowned and best loved artists, Francisco de Goya (1746 -1828).

During the late 18th Century Goya painted all of the most influential figures in the courts of Charles III and Charles IV . Like all great portrait painters, Goya not only conveys a likeness of the sitter but also gives us an insight in to the psychology of the subject. With his innovative painting style, he imbues his subjects with life and character. Here are a selection of these portraits from the archive.
