Post Goya, Francisco: Los disparates (Illustrated). v1 2 Nov 2010

Francisco Josť 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 disparates" (Follies, nonsense), also known as "Los proverbios" (Proverbs) is a series of 22 aquatint etchings (most probably unfinished) created in 1815-1823 and first published (posthumously) in 1864. They are oneiric, almost surrealist fantasies, with a satire of vice and customs... but they are in general quite difficult to interpret.

This is a "book" with no text, just the pictures (and their titles).
