Francisco de Goya

was one of Spain's greatest painters and an internationally influential printmaker during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. In 1774, Goya received his first royal commission -- painting decorative scenes of daily life to be woven into tapestries. In 1799 he was appointed first court painter, the highest artistic position attainable. (National Gallery of Art)
