Abstract

This essay examines Francisco Goya's Saint Francis Borgia at the Deathbed of an Impenitent, 1788, in relation to late eighteenth-century aesthetic thought in Spain. Although modern scholarship has focused on the emergence of the supernatural in this work, a neglected contemporary analysis by Pedro de Silva, an adviser to the Madrid and Valencia royal academies, provides a point of departure for the examination of Goya's depiction of the dying sinner. Within this context, it is argued that the painting marks a significant crossroad in Goya's representation of the human figure.
