Goya was influenced by the Spanish baroque and especially the paintings of Velasquez when he exhibited this painting for entry into the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando in 1780. The artist combined the classical model with his knowledge of anatomy to create a new realism for a subject that had been painted for centuries.

Our Approach:
Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
