A famed painter in his own lifetime, Francisco de Goya was born on March 30, 1746, in Fuendetodos, Spain. He began his art studies as a teenager and even spent time in Rome, Italy, to advance his skills. In 1770s, Goya began to work for Spanish royal court.
The Black Paintings were painted in Goya's house outside Madrid, where he moved in 1819, at age 72. He had left his position as court painter at the time. The murals were complete by 1823, as Goya - disappointed by the lack of reform in Spain - left the house and entered a self-imposed exile to France, where he would mostly remain until his death.
The Black Paintings (Spanish: Pinturas negras) is the name given to a group of fourteen paintings by Francisco Goya from the later years of his life, likely between 1819 and 1823. They portray intense, haunting themes, reflective of both his fear of insanity and his bleak outlook on humanity.
Goya then painted two paintings about these events, known as 'El dos de mayo de 1808 en Madrid' (The 2nd of May of 1808 in Madrid) and 'El tres de mayo de 1808 en Madrid' (The 3rd of May of 1808 in Madrid).
