Goyaesques is a musical depiction of 5 paintings by the Spanish Painter Francisco Goya (1746 - 1828). The piece opens with a regal fanfare depicting La familia de Carlos IV, a portrait of the royal family. Not everyone in the painting is beautiful, on the contrary some are rather disgusting and hag-like. The central figure is Queen Maria Luisa , who by all accounts ran the country while the king was out hunting. Goya "Photoshopped" himself into the background and can be seen at his easel in the back left.
