Goya's Saturn

from departing souls by John Oliver



Goya's painting, generally referred to as "Saturn Eats His Son," is one of his "Black Paintings" series of frescos that he painted directly onto his apartment walls in his old age. Goya did not talk about these works, nor did he name them. This wild-eyed maniac is paranoid that his sons will kill him, so he eats them one by one. But his wife spares one of the sons, who later kills him.
