Description

1st Edition

"Los Proverbios" are among Goya's most ambiguous and enigmatic works. Probably made about 1816, some of the works were inscribed by Goya with titles referring to disparates, or follies. They were not published during his lifetime, probably because of their pointed social commentary. At the time of their publication in 1864, they were titled "Los Proverbios" because the subjects corresponded to commonly known proverbs of the period.
