  • Note: Desastres de la Guerra (Disasters of War) was one of four sets of prints illustrating the horrors of war then raging in Europe and the follies of 18th century Spain with its religious, social and political upheavals. Desastres de la Guerra was not published during the artist's lifetime due to the controversial subject matter in the era of the inquisition. The name by which the series is known today is not Goya's own. His handwritten title on an album of proofs given to a friend reads: "Fatal consequences of Spain's bloody war with Bonaparte, and other emphatic caprices (Spanish: Fatales consequencias de la sangrienta guerra en España con Buonaparte, Y otros caprichos enfáticos)"(source: Wikipedia).

    The aquatint printing strong throughout.
