Francisco Goya

This series of etchings illustrating the art of bullfighting was first published by Goya in 1816 and were a testament to Goya's love and understanding of this most Spanish spectacle.  The compositions begin with depictions of the origins and history of bullfighting and move chronologically through up to Goya's contemporaries.
