Goya – Saturn Devouring His Son

Francisco de Goya may not be an artist specializes in macabre art, but in this blog could not miss the creepy work of art Saturn Devouring His Son, belonging to the series of Black Paintings and painted with oil on the walls of his house called Quinta del Sordo. The work is now in the Museo del Prado (Madrid, Spain), as it was transferred to canvas by Salvador Martinez Cubells in 1873.

The figure of Cronus (Saturn in Roman mythology), who, fearing that he would be overthrown by one of his children, ate each one upon their birth.
