Goya, Francisco: La Tauromaquia y Los toros de Burdeos (Illustrated). v5 8 Feb 2009

Quote:
Originally Posted by jellby
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.

"La Tauromaquia" (Tauromachia, Bullfighting) (1816) is a series of 33 etchings (plus 7 "backsides", plus 3 discarded tests) commemorating the story and most famous events of the Spanish national "sport" (which I personally loathe). Despite the unifying theme, it is a varied series from the artistic point of view, with some pieces ahead of its time (like the composition in number 21, unimaginable in the art of the time).

"Los toros de Burdeos" (The Bulls at Bordeaux) (1825) is a series of 4 lithographs made by Goya in the French city of Bordeaux. Again with a bullfighting theme, but now more directed towards the popular feast around it.

This is a "book" with no text, just the pictures (and their titles). The pictures are all scanned from an excellent paper edition, except two unpublished plates, taken from the Spanish National Library (link).

I'm uploading two versions. The one named *_SmIm.mobi has smaller (in filesize and dimensions) images, to comply with mobipocket limitations/specifications. The "large images" (and better quality) version works fine in the Cybook and in the Mobipocket Desktop Reader, though, so my advice is to use this if your reader supports it.
Here are .IMP conversions of only the "_SmIm.mobi" using the convention of "_1200.imp" for the REB1200 and ".imp" for the EBW1150.

BTW, the higher-res (larger) version is a bit more clearer/crisper and can be converted using Mobi2IMP and the original "large images" .mobi. I haven't included that "large images" version here.

Enjoy!
