Description

The snack is a painting by the famous Spanish artist Francisco de Goya. It was painted in oil around 1776-1780 and represents a group of middle class people who enjoy a snack on the outskirts of Madrid, on the banks of the Manzanares River.

In painting you can see men and women sitting on the floor while enjoying food and drink, and there are also musicians playing music for the entertainment of the group. The scene is a portrait of everyday life in eighteenth -century Spain and reflects the relaxed and carefree lifestyle of the middle class of the time.

The painting also stands out for its lighting and color style, with a golden light that falls on the characters and trees, creating a warm and cozy atmosphere. The snack is considered one of the most representative works of the Rococó period in Spain and one of Goya's best known paintings.
