Francisco de Goya

Goya's La maja desnuda and La maja vestida.

Goya painted La maja vestida after outrage in Spanish society over the previous Desnuda. Without a pretense to allegorical or mythological meaning, the painting was "the first totally profane life-size female nude in Western art".

He refused to paint clothes on her, and instead created a new painting.
