Estatua De Goya - Review
Francisco de Goya was the epitome of artistry and even tough he loved baroque art, was one of the foremost faces of neo-classical paintings. His paintings and prints evoke the best of the Romanticism period.
The statue made by sculptor Mariano Benlliure portrays Goya in classic 19th century attire standing on a pedestal that is carved in stone and consists of the name of ‘Naked Maja’- a popular painting of the artist.

Estatua De Goya, Madrid Reviews
Nice statue. Pretty park around. Depending on the time & day, it may be a bit crowded, but usually there's some nice shady spots to sit & rest or people watch.
Fans of Francisco Goya will want to see the monument of the Spanish Old Master outside the north entrance of Museo do Nacional del Prado. The statue is facing the ticket queuing area of the museum. This bronze of Goya is the work of Spanish sculptor Mariano Benlliure (1902) and depicts an aged Goya, standing in overcoat with a hat in his left hand. Goya is standing upon a granite pedestal where you see a haunting image from Goya's series of Black Paintings. At the base of the statue is a marble image of Goya's La Maja desnuda. Overall, this is nice monument of Goya showing not just the artist but images from his artworks which gave him much fame and prestige amongst Spanish and European artists of the nineteenth century. This is worthing a couple minutes to enjoy before or after your visit to Prado. Note: For those who enjoy viewing statues, there is also a seated statue of Diego de Velázquez in front of the main facade of the Prado facing Paseo del Prado.
The museum is great! Statue, well, I don't know much about Goya.
