Product Description

THE NUDE AND CLOTHED MAJA - JEWELS OF ART - 2015 2 X 1 oz Silver Proof Coins with Ruby & Sapphire - SOLOMON ISLANDS

These two coins portray two famous oil on canvas painting by the Spanish artist Francisco Goya.

One is The Nude Maja is a name given to a c. 1797–1800 oil on canvas painting by the Spanish artist Francisco Goya. It portrays a nude woman reclining on a bed of pillows, and was probably commissioned by Manuel de Godoy, to hang in his private collection in a separate cabinet reserved for nude paintings. Goya created a pendant of the same woman identically posed, but clothed, known today as La maja vestida (The Clothed Maja); also in the Prado, it is usually hung next to La maja desnuda. The subject is identified as a maja based on her costume in La maja vestida.

The second coin is The Clothed Maja is a pendant painting by the Spanish painter Francisco de Goya between 1800 and 1805. It is a clothed version of the earlier La maja desnuda (1797–1800) and is exhibited next to it in the same room at the Prado Museum in Madrid.
