Francisco Goya; Saturn; the reception of antiquity
Scripta Classica, Vol. 10 (2013), s. 147-164
In his painting Saturn, Goya has transformed traditional myth version – stripped divinity of its attributes
and transferred it into universal dimension, causing an image of father devouring his own
children to start being interpreted in new social‑political
contexts. The reception of Saturn myth
through Goya’s artwork is also demonstrated in the Spanish cinema.
