At the beginning of the 19th century, The Naked Maja and The Clothed Maja were part of the painting collection of Manuel Godoy, King Charles IV's prime minister, so it is likely that Goya painted them for him, although the details of the commission are unknown. Legend has it that it belonged to the Duchess of Alba, and that she may even have been the model, but this theory is almost unanimously rejected. Once considered indecent, this nude is an affirmation of the sensuality of a beautiful female body exhibited in all its intimate, realistic loveliness without mythological or historical pretexts. 

The 'Museo Nacional del Prado' is considered to have one of the world's finest collections of European art, dating from the 12thcentury to the early 20th century. The Prado is one of the most visited sites in the world and considered one of the greatest art museums in the world. The collection currently contains over 20,000 drawings, paintings, prints, sculptures and other works of art and historic documents.
