More information

The meaning of Goya’s last print series, ‘Los Proverbios’, is not entirely clear. It is believed that they depict popular proverbs or fables. The scenes are full of bizarre but horrific and terrifying figures, phantoms, giants and flying creatures. In literature the series is also known as ‘Los Disparates’ (Follies) on the basis of the handwritten titles on a number of very rare proofs.
