  • Description

In La Tauromaquia, Goya succeeded in creating some of the most intensely charged images in the repertory of graphic art. In these scenes, the brighter the sun (just as the brighter the footlights for Degas’s dancers and Toulouse-Lautrec’s singers), the more apparent is the all-surrounding darkness and the more limited and fragmented the scene becomes.
