Art in September: Let Hot Docs be your refuge for art for art’s sake.
Spain’s most revered artist, Francisco Goya, was a master of portraiture who used the medium for unabashed realism, never shying away from his honest physical and psychological observations—and yet he still received commissions from the most powerful figures of the day. A landmark exhibition at The National Gallery on his portraits and the story of his dramatic life intertwine in this in-depth look at his work and rise in society. With access to his letters and footage from where he lived and painted, this film brings to life his visionary style and the world that shaped it. http://ow.ly/jF3j30ehElr
