8 1/16 x 12 1/8 in. (20.48 x 30.8 cm)
Gazul, a legendary Moorish nobleman, is mentioned in Moratin's test. By eliminating all spatial pionts of reference, Goya focuses attention on the dramatic intersection of horse and bull. The sharp light/dark contrast of the animal forms further intensifies the confrontation.
