The Power of Goya's 'La Tauromaquia'

Launch Slideshow

La Tauromaquia, a set of 33 prints etched by Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes in 1815 and 1816, illustrates the art of bullfighting from its medieval origins through to the artist’s day. In the final plates in the series, Goya illustrated the awe-inspiring feats of his contemporaries, recording or imagining actual events in the bullring and paying homage to the most celebrated toreros of his time.
