Goya, Francisco: Los caprichos (Spanish, Illustrated). v2 21 Nov 2010
Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes (1746-1828) was a Spanish painter and printmaker. He was court painter but also painted popular scenes and events. Much of the image we have now of the 18th-19th century in Spain is in "Goyesque" style, as shown by his paintings and drawings. He has been regarded both as the last of the old masters and as the first of the moderns.
"Los caprichos" (1799) is a series of 80 aquatints (etchings) created as a sort of artistic experiment, it is a sarcastic critique of the superstition and foolishness of the Society of his time, although the meaning of the plates is not always straightforward.
This is a "book" with almost no text, just the pictures (and their titles, and comments). The pictures are scanned from a paper reproduction, except the last three unpublished ones.
All kind of feedback is welcome.
EDIT (v2): Fixed some typing mistakes.
