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).
