Francisco de Goya" The Third of May, 1808"

Francisco de Goya was a Spanish artist that painted The Third of May in response to the killings of Spanish civilians during a fight between the Spanish and French armies. He used straight brush strokes with colors reminiscing a warm Summer night. The only vivid color located in the painting is on the shirt of one of the men who is surrounded by other civilians. His shirt is a white color and his pants are tan. Goya did not paint all the faces onto the victims which in a way represents nonexistence.
