Goya en Burdeos

A los 82 años, exiliado en Burdeos con Leocadia Zorrilla de Weiss, la última de sus amantes, el pintor Francisco de Goya reconstruye para su hija Rosario los acontecimientos que marcaron su vida. Una vida en la que se suceden convulsiones políticas, pasiones emponzoñadas y el éxtasis de la fama.

Goya in Bordeaux

Francisco Goya (1746-1828), deaf and ill, lives the last years of his life in voluntary exile in Bordeaux, a Liberal protesting the oppressive rule of Ferdinand VII. He’s living with his much younger wife Leocadia and their daughter Rosario. He continues to paint at night, and in flashbacks stirred by conversations with his daughter, by awful headaches, and by the befuddlement of age, he relives key times in his life, particularly his relationship with the Duchess of Alba, his discovery of how he wanted to paint (insight provided by Velázquez’s work), and his lifelong celebration of the imagination. Throughout, his reveries become tableaux of his paintings.
