Francisco de Goya (1746-1828) - Spanish painter and printmaker of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Goya is known for his powerful and expressive style, which combined elements of the traditional and the modern. He produced a series of prints "Los Caprichos" (1799) and "The Disasters of War" (1810-1820), which are considered masterpieces of printmaking. Goya's later works were considered controversial for their dark, disturbing, and satirical nature.
