Spanish artist, Francisco de Goya (1746-1828) did the painting, The Third of May, 1808 in 1814. Goya painted with loose brushstrokes and excellent use of color and light. The Third of May, 1808 is about a revolt in Madrid against the French occupation. There are 2 main gatherings of people; the firing squad and the captives. Goya repeated the soldiers’ inflexible bearing and the row of rifles. The victims are in uneven positions. The lantern throws a strong light on the victims. The focus is on the male victim with his arms up. The colors of his clothing are repeated in the lantern. Goya used color to model the forms.
