#EBOOK å Colossus: A Novel about Goya & a World Gone Mad ï eBook or E-pub free

I think the author captured the spirit of Goya quite well in this biography However, in my opinion, too much of the book was about his love affair with the Duchess of Alba Too little was spent on Spain s history with Napoleon and how it affected Goya s work At least in terms of the number of pages devoted to each, it seemed out of balance to me The author s knowledge of Goya s work was evident and well expressed, but I would have likeddetail about the historical context of Goya s most I think the author captured the spirit of Goya quite well in this biography However, in my opinion, too

this.At times florid and melodramatic, this was a comprehensive imagining of the real life and times of the living legend of Francisco Jos de Goya y Lucientes, the Spanish artist Paco Goya From humble origins in the backwaters of Aragon, his artistic talent was recognised and nurtured from an early age A schoolboy brawl in which he killed another boy in self defence forced him into a life of petty thievery and the glamour of the bullfighting circuit where he was befriended by a talented bullfighting family who became the famed Api ani dynasty Spending the majority of their lives in the capital Madrid, they kept him in touch with the common people as his career progressed Persuaded not to squander his God given talent, he often had to repress his natural style to fit into the current taste in art With a background of the developing Enlightenment, originating in Paris, Goya s free thinking and personality often got him into trouble, but it also made him lasting friends, benefactors and a string of high born lovers.The women in this novel are mostly based on real people, though many of Goya s liaisons are rumoured based on the people he painted his first love Mariana, Marquesa de Solis y Olavide his long suffering wife Josefa Bayeu the love of his life, Cayetana, Duchess of Alba Leocadia who fought with his son as a guerrillero during the War of Spanish Independence against the French and cared for him in his dotage.During the reign of King Carlos III, the intrigues at court were reminiscent of the goings on in the wonderful film of Dangerous Liaisons, with rivalries between the various court hostesses reaching ridiculous heights There is one marvellous incident where Cayetana made a fool of the queen, Maria Luisa, by trumping her import of the latest Paris fashion What should have been a triumph for the queen made her a laughing stock and was well deserved, though Cayetana herself was far from being an angel herself The perfect plot for any story of jealous and vindictive rivals view spoiler Cayetana used a spy in Paris to find out what the queen was having made and, rather than undermining her by wearing the same dress at a prominent event, she totally humiliated her by being attended by five of her lesser maids, each dressed in identical copies hide spoiler This book has been a favourite of mine since I first read it some 27 years ago It is the
