Reviews

  • "Goya is what a good art book - or indeed any book - should be; personal and clear-sighted, passionate and thoughtful. The pugnacious Hughes knows what he knows about Goya, and he also knows how to express it."

    Michael Prodger, Sunday Telegraph
  • "Robert Hughes s Goya manages, with his usual style and skill, to enter into the spirit of the most enigmatic of painters."

    Colm Toibin, New Statesman
  • "an urbane, scholarly, immensely readable book that not only throws light on the artist s independent brilliance but also, in Hughes s wry and trenchant style, on the boorish parochialism of 18th-century Spain."

    Sue Hubbard, The Independent
  • "an enthralling and illuminating - if uncharacteristically deferential - study..."

    Michael Kerrigan, The Scotsman
