Introduction Francisco de Goya y Lucientes was born in Fuendetodos, Zaragoza, on the 30th of March 1746. He studied to become a painter and a printmaker in Madrid and he travelled to Italy in 1770. At the time his style was New-Classicism. He returned to Madrid to paint but with a different style, because in 1793 he suffered from a serious illness and became deaf, in the paintings he reflected his outlook on humanity and his fear of insanity. He died in Bordeaux, France, on the 16th of April 1828. Triple generation Virgen del Pilar
