Francisco de Goya y Lucientes (1746-1828), Two Heads Are Better than One, 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.

The Artist

Francisco Goya

Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes was a Spanish romantic painter and printmaker. He is considered the most important Spanish artist of late 18th and early 19th centuries and throughout his long career was a commentator and chronicler of his era. Immensely successful in his lifetime, Goya is often referred to as both the last of the Old Masters and the first of the moderns. He was also one of the great portraitists of modern times.
