More Information

Francisco de Goya y Lucientes (1746-1828), etching, with burnished aquatint, drypoint and engraving, c. 1812; plate 11 from  Los Proverbios. References: Delteil 212, Harris 258. In very good condition, 240 x 352 mm., 9 7/16 x 13 7/8 inches, the sheet 280 x 380 mm., 11 x 15 1/8 inches.

A very fine, rare, proof impression, before the edition of c. 1854-1863, printed on cream wove paper.

In this proof impression the delineation of the aquatint is clearer and more vivid than in the published edition, and figures are shown in greater detail, allowing a fuller appreciation of their expressive qualities.
