"During his life, Goya painted portraits of the wealthy people in Spain's royal court. Dukes, duchesses, kings, and queens paid Goya to make paintings of them."
This biography introduces Goya in a manner that is fun and interesting to young children. The author’s premise is that if children can think of artists as real people, then the world of art will open up to them.
Through his own illustrations and a clever story line, along with reproductions of the artists’ works, the author conveys a wealth of information about Goya, his time, and his art. Great for reading aloud and discussion. Paperback, 32 pages each. Ages 4 and up.
