Francisco GOYA - Los Caprichos de Hoya

Los caprichos is a series of 80 prints by the Spanish painter Francisco de Goya, which represents a satire of the Spanish society of the late eighteenth century, especially the nobility and clergy.

In the first half he presented the most realistic and satirical engravings criticizing from the reason the behavior of his counterparts. In the second part he abandoned rationality and represented fantastic engravings where he showed delirious visions of strange beings through the absurd.

He used a mixed technique of etching, aquatint and drypoint touch-ups. He exaggeratedly deformed the physiognomies and bodies of those who represent human vices and clumsiness giving beastly aspects.
