  • $19.00

The World of Goya by Richard Schickel. A brief but solid introduction to this renowned Spanish artist, some of whose work (such as Saturn Devouring His Son) is widely-known. As is this series' design, the book is equal parts a look at the artist, his work and the world that he lived in. Gorgeous photos and prints of Goya's art compliment a nice bit of history combined with a touch of art insight. Richard Schickel is an important American film historian, journalist, author, filmmaker, screenwriter, documentarian, and film and literary critic.

Mr.Schickel is featured in For the Love of Movies: The Story of American Film Criticism. In this 2009 documentary film he discusses early film critics in the 1960s, and how he and other young critics, rejected the moralizing opposition of Bosley Crowther of The New York Times who had railed against violent movies such as Bonnie and Clyde.
In addition to film, Schickel has also critiqued and documented cartoons, particularly Peanuts.

Schickel was a recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1964. He has also lectured at Yale University and University of Southern California's School of Film and Television.
