Saturn Devouring His Son
As one of the fourteen in Goya’s Black Paintings (paintings directly created onto the walls of the artist’s home sometime between 1819 and 1823), it is a great piece to own since the artist himself did not intend to show these paintings to the public.
Lover of the macabre or Greek Mythology? Then this painting should grace the wall of your gallery.
Saturn Devouring His Son is a great conversation piece because it can be interpreted in various ways – both political and personal.
The Third of May 1808
The original was a huge painting. A smaller reproduction can capture the scene without you needing to buy a mansion to put it in!
The painting was commissioned by the government of Spain and was one of the first modern paintings to show the horrors of war
The scene shows events after Napoleon had tricked the Spanish leadership into allowing his troops into the country a good talking point on which to educate any curious guests who ask about the painting!
