The Colossus (also known as Giant) (Spanish: El Coloso) is a painting at one time attributed to Francisco de Goya, but now believed to have been painted by an apprentice, probably Asensio Juliá. In January 2009, the Museo del Prado reported that an investigation of the painting's authorship had proved inconclusive: “The findings to this date do not confirm that the author was Juliá, the painting can only be attributed to a follower of Goya“. The Colossus was painted between 1808 and 1812. It is possible that it is the painting identified as The Giant in the inventory of Goya's goods in 1812, the year in which they became the property of his son, Javier Goya. Later it was owned by Pedro Fernández Durán, who passed his collection onto the Museo del Prado, where The Colossus has been kept since 1931. The work has been interpreted in many ways, having received other names, including The Panic and The Storm.
