About this artwork

Like Velázquez in the 17th century, Goya was an artist to the Spanish Royal Court. He worked in a variety of media, from tapestry design and painting to printing. While his posthumous fame derived from the satirical series Caprichos and the Disasters of War, he also produced other types of prints. Some of his earliest were reproductive etchings after Velázquez’s much-prized portraits and history paintings. Goya would have seen the originals hanging in the Royal Palace in Madrid (now in the Museo del Prado).
