1828: Spanish painter and printmaker Francisco Goya, regarded both as the last of the Old Masters and the first of the moderns, dies of a stroke at the age of 82 in Bordeaux, France. Known for paintings such as "The Third of May 1808," Goya provided a model for the work of later generations of artists, notably Manet, Picasso and Francis Bacon.
