THE SERIOUS MINDED FRANCISCO GOYA (1746-1828) Francisco de Goya, the last of the great Spanish Old Masters, forms a link between the 18th and 19th centuries, much as Jean-Antoine Watteau does between the 17th and 18th, or El Greco between the 16th and 17th.And like both of them he is a lonely figure, too personal to fit into the spirit of his day, and yet compelled to serve a royal patron, the King of Spain.Beginning with Mesopotamian art (c.4500 BCE onwards), it includes the sculpture and frescos of Classical Antiquity, notably those of Greek art and Roman art.For the history of Asian art and culture, see Chinese Art Timeline (c.18,000 BCE - present).
