The Spanish painter Francisco Goya will be the main protagonist of the lecture of the Mistrzowie portretu series by the Art Transfer Foundation. This renowned artist worked as a court painter of three Spanish kings: Charles III of Bourbon, Charles IV of Bourbon and Ferdinand VII of Bourbon. Goya was an admirer of Diego Velázquez, his predecessor at the Spanish court, but at the same time he set new paths for modern art. His paintings are characterized by a strong individualism that would develop in the work of subsequent artists.
