EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases "A city on a rock" an oil on canvas painting created between 1850-75 by Francisco Goya y Lucientes. Measuring 83.8x104.1 cm, this artwork is housed in the prestigious Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, USA. Originally titled "Attack on a Fortress at the Foot of a Mountain" this piece was previously attributed to Goya himself but is now believed to be the work of a Spanish follower. It may have been inspired by the hill of Villaseca in Toledo, Spain. The painting depicts a dramatic scene with dark and foreboding elements. A fortress stands atop a sheer rocky cliff, while birds circle overhead ominously. In the distance, buildings can be seen amidst the rugged mountain landscape. The composition exudes tension and chaos as flying men appear to attack the fort from all angles. The artist skillfully combines various styles and influences to create this pastiche artwork that captures both Spanish history and Goya's distinctive aesthetic. This mesmerizing image transports viewers into an intense moment frozen in time—a testament to Goya's enduring legacy as one of Spain's most renowned painters.
