Written and presented by renowned art critic Robert Hughes, 'Crazy Like A Genius' explores the world of Francisco Goya: charting his achievements as a court painter, satirist and war reporter as well as a topographer of the inner self of madness, fear and despair. The programme offers a detailed visual and intellectual analysis of Goya masterpieces, including 'Witches in the Air', 'The Third of May' and 'The Dream of Reason', as well as examples of his early work and portraiture such as 'The Duchess of Alba', as well as 'The Nude Maja' and 'The Clothed Maja'. Hughes gives an insight into the enormous changes that took place in Goya's work in the course of his life: the shift from light to dark. In Spain, he travels to Goya's native Aragon and, in Madrid, he is seen visiting the galleries, palaces and churches where Goya's works are on display. In New York, Hughes calls on the American painter Leon Golub, who shares his fascination for Goya, and elicits a contemporary artist's perspective on the Spanish master's work. Hughes professes himself incapable of summing sum up Goya's achievements neatly, but concludes that ''to meet Goya is still to meet ourselves''.
