The Clothed Maja by Goya
Oil on canvas reproduction of “The Clothed Maja”, a work that Goya painted in 1800. It is one of Goya’s most famous works perhaps because there is an almost identical but naked work.
Its first owner was Manuel Godoy, a Spanish nobleman and politician who led Spain during the French Revolution and the war of independence. The maja was seized, and in 1814 she was claimed by the Holy Inquisition as an obscene work according to them.
It has always been said that the model was the thirteenth duchess of Alba, who was a friend of Goya’s, which seems more likely, since her first owner was Godoy, who was his mistress.
The work is housed in the “Museo del Prado”.
The original has dimensions of 95 x 190 cm.
