“Disparate de carnabal” (Carnival folly)

Etching, aquatint, drypoint 24.5 x 35 cm.
Plate 14 of the famous series “Los Proverbios” .
First edition of nine, edited posthumous in 1864. Before the numbers.
Fine impression, printed on woven paper.

Francisco Goya created his final and most enigmatic print series in the years between 1815 and 1824. For reasons that remain unclear, 40 years passed before their publication in 1864. The series was published under the title Los Proverbios, although Goya's own captions for the working proofs include the word "Disparates," meaning "follies." As a result, this print series is known by both titles. The proverbs assigned to each plate were added upon publication.
