Francisco Goya was a romanticist and is widely regarded as the most important Spanish artist of his era. Highly successful within his own lifetime he marks an artistic turning point as one of the last Old Masters and one of the first modern painters. His talents led him to an appointment as a court painter to the Spanish Crown and his early portrait works detail a wide array of the Spanish royalty and aristocracy.
The Nude Maja was the first in a two painting series, the second of which was The Clothed Maja, respectively. It is said to be the first painting in which female pubic hair is visible, making it totally profane at the time. Many art historians agree that the model was a compilation of many female figures. It portrays a nude woman reclining on a bed of pillows, and was probably commissioned by Manuel de Godoy, to hang in his private collection in a separate cabinet reserved for nude paintings.
