Public domain ← → Nude Maja Francisco Goya Original Title: Maja Desnuda Alternative name: La maja desnuda Date: 1800 Style: Romanticism Genre: nude painting (nu) Media: oil, canvas Dimensions: 98 x 191 cm Location: Museo del Prado, Madrid, Spain Tags: female-nude Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_maja_desnuda File Source: commons.wikimedia.org Order an oil painting reproduction Ad Image dimension 750x380px, View all sizes The Nude Maja was the first in a two painting series, the second of which was The Clothed Maja, respectively. It is said to be the first painting in which female pubic hair is visible, making it totally profane at the time. The identity of the model in the image is under debate, with some art historians thinking the model was the mistress of Prime Minister Manuel de Godoy, who commissioned the paintings, or that it was Goya’s mistress. Many art historians agree that the model was a compilation of many female figures. In 1813, the Spanish Inquisition confiscated both of the paintings as obscene, returning them to the Academy of Fine Arts in 1936, after Goya’s death. In the 1930’s Spain issued postage stamps with the image of the Maja, and subsequently all mail bearing the stamps were denied entrance into the United States.
