16: Francisco Goya was referred to the Father of Modern Art, because his idea that the artist's personal vision had more importance than his subject opened new ways of thinking which helped art break free from commissioned portraits and religious imagery. Goya's artistic career lasted for over 60 years, and in that time he showed an extraordinary growth from Baroque all the way through creating his own style. | Goya painted for himself and his work would not only inspire but enlighten.
17: "First be a magnificent artist and then you can do whatever, but the art must be first." -Francisco Goya
