The Clothed Maja (La Maja Vestida). (Detail)

Name: The Clothed Maja (La Maja Vestida). (Detail)
Artist: Francisco Goya
Location: Museo del Prado, Madrid, Spain
Year: 1800

Goya painted two versions of the Maja, clothed and nude. The clothed Maja was the first painting and originally called Gypsy'. There has been much speculation as to who the model was. One legend surrounding both paintings connected them with the Duchess of Alba, as a consequence of the probable loving affair between the painter and the noble lady. Because the head does not correspond to the body many researchers believe that he probably used at least two models, one for the face and another for the body.
