EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases Francisco Goya's iconic masterpiece, "La Maja Desnuda" or "The Naked Maja". Painted between 1797 and 1800, this controversial artwork is believed to have been commissioned by Manuel de Godoy for his private collection. The subject of the painting has long been debated, with some claiming it portrays the Duchess of Alba while others identify her as Pepita Also Tudo, Godoy's mistress at the time. In this image, we see a reclining Venus-like figure on a bed of plush green velvet pillows. The model's direct gaze towards the viewer is unapologetic and unabashedly confident. Goya's use of oil on canvas brings out rich colors and textures that enhance the sensuality of the scene. Currently held at Museo del Prado in Madrid, this artwork continues to captivate audiences with its provocative depiction of female nudity. It represents a significant moment in Spanish art history during the late 18th century. This particular print captures every detail meticulously, from the fabric texture to the posture and expression of the model. It transports us back to a time when artistic boundaries were pushed and societal norms challenged. Whether you appreciate it for its historical significance or simply admire its beauty, this print allows you to bring home a piece of art history that continues to provoke discussion even today.
