In the collision between Tzvetan Todorov, a bright thinker, and the life and creativity of the first genius artist of modernity - Francisco Goya, new dimensions are revealed. In them coexist the material and spiritual beginnings, the ambitions of secular success and the uncompromising search for truth, public appearances and self-reflection, as well as reason and irrationality.

Todorov binds his insightful reading of nearly seventy paintings, with the biographical, historical and aesthetic context of their creation. But after the deep immersion in Goya's era, he brought his work to the surface of ours. Thus, we perceive Goya as a contemporary. Analyzed by Todorov, his paintings are more than a historical testimony. They open our eyes to the violence, superstition and insanity in the modern world.

A remarkable book about a great artist!
