Goya's Forge, painted about 1815-20, with its pervasive darkness, vigorous brushstrokes, and proletarian subject matter, introduces a note of harsh realism into the generally calm and restful pictures in The Frick Collection. The size of this painting—normally reserved for religious or mythological scenes—endows the image of backbreaking labor with a sense of monumentality. In composition, the work evokes the traditional depictions of the forge of Vulcan, here updated to the gritty reality of modern industrial Europe. For the steel magnate Frick, the subject of this Spanish masterpiece must have had strong resonance. Little detracts from the raw power of the three workers arranged in a pyramidal composition around a red-hot sheet of molten steel.

Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes was a Spanish romantic painter and printmaker. He is considered the most important Spanish artist of late 18th and early 19th centuries and throughout his long career was a commentator and chronicler of his era. Immensely successful in his lifetime, Goya is often referred to as both the last of the Old Masters and the first of the moderns.
