Did famous painter Goya accept his deafness?
One would think he never accepted his deafness.
He reacted very badly when he was not able
to hear normally.
Well, his house in Spain was named
“Quinta del Sordo” which means Villa of
the Deaf Person.”
If he was unwilling to accept his deafness
then why call it the “deaf house”?
Always a mystery.
