The house of Francisco Goya in Fuendetodos

The father of modern art, Spanish artist Francisco de Goya painted royal portraits as well as more subversive works in late 1700s and early 1800s.

Goya was born to a lower middle class family in 1746, in Fuendetodos in Aragon. He studied painting from age 14 under José Luzán y Martinez.

His father worked as a master goldsmith in the local parish church. Built in the 18th century, this house belonged to Miguel Lucientes, the brother of Goya’s mother, Gracia Lucientes, a member of the minor nobility. After remaining unrecognised for many years, the house was identified by Ignacio Zuloaga and a group of Zaragoza intellectuals in the early 20th century.
