During his eighty-two years of life, Francisco José Goya y Lucientes drew and painted for about seventy, etched for some fifty, and made lithographs for five or ten. Each mode of expression carried his fame differently to different countries. In Spain his paintings made him widely known before he was forty, while his etchings fell flat. When he was seventy-nine some of his prints were copied in Paris, and his big lithographs were admired there shortly after his death in 1828. His drawings have been the revelation of the last half-century.
