These informal talks with Melanie Paice and Peter Scott will encourage discussion and debate that discuss a mixture of themes in art and the artists themselves. Melanie is an artist, art tutor and lecturer and Peter is a guide and lecturer, they both have led tours at Tate Britain and Tate Modern for over 20 years.

Francisco Goya was born in Aragon and his talents were recognised early in his career and in 1786 he was appointed painter to the Spanish Court. In 1793 he suffered an illness which left him profoundly deaf, after which his work became darker and more melancholy. From 1819 to 1823 he painted a group of works in oils on the walls of his house, which came to be known as his 'Black Paintings'. After his death they were removed from the walls and placed in the Prado.
