But Spain's reactionary king, served by an aggressive Inquisition, has other plans for Spain's greatest artist.

Learning Guide Excerpt
To demonstrate how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to improve lesson plans, we have set out below the first two sections from the Learning Guide to Goya Awakened in a Dream.
Description: Francisco Goya (1746 - 1828) was one of the most accomplished and original painters of all time. His work predicted the dominant movements of modern art in the 19th and 20th centuries: Romanticism, Impressionism, Expressionism and Surrealism. Goya's ground breaking paintings served as an inspiration to French artists, such as the Impressionists, who broke away from the scholastic artistic traditions that prevailed in the second half of the nineteenth century.
In this film, Goya is an old man, threatened by the Inquisition and misunderstood by his only surviving son. Goya has hired a new housekeeper. He finds solace in his "Black Paintings" and in teaching his housekeeper's daughter how to paint.
This is another installment of the award winning Artists' Specials, created for HBO by Devine Entertainment. While Goya: Awakened in a Dream did not itself garner any awards, it is well made and interesting.
