"Goya is what a good art book - or indeed any book - should be; personal and clear-sighted, passionate and thoughtful. The pugnacious Hughes knows what he knows about Goya, and he also knows how to express it." (Michael Prodger, Sunday Telegraph)
"Robert Hughes s Goya manages, with his usual style and skill, to enter into the spirit of the most enigmatic of painters." (Colm Toibin, New Statesman)
"an urbane, scholarly, immensely readable book that not only throws light on the artist s independent brilliance but also, in Hughes s wry and trenchant style, on the boorish parochialism of 18th-century Spain." (Sue Hubbard, The Independent)
"an enthralling and illuminating - if uncharacteristically deferential - study..." (Michael Kerrigan, The Scotsman)
