GOYA Y LUCIENTES, Francisco de
(b. 1746, Fuendetodos, d. 1828, Bordeaux)

The Speed and Daring of Juanito Apiñani in the Ring of Madrid

Etching and aquatint, 245 x 355 mm

This is Plate 20 from the series Tauromaquia.

In the Tauromaquia, unlike in his paintings, Goya allows the ring and the spectators to almost disappear and concentrates entirely on the fight between the bull and the man.
