The Parasol.

Name: The Parasol.
Artist: Francisco Goya
Location: Museo del Prado, Madrid, Spain
Year: 1777

Goya was a child prodigy who could draw like an angel. He was a master of styles, innovative, brisk, and unerring. Like Picasso, Goya painted a bewildering variety of moods and subjects, almost switching back and forth at will between the sweet and the sad. The Parasol was painted as a cartoon for a tapestry weaving for the winter residence of future King Charles IV, and his wife Maria Luisa. The finished tapestry was hung in the dining hall of the couples Pardo Palace outside Madrid.
