Francisco de Goya (aka Francisco de Goya y Lucientes)(Fuendetodos, Spain, March 30, 1746 - April 16, 1828, Bordeaux, France)
La Tauromaquia, 1st edition, plate 6, Los moros hacen otro capeo en plaza con su albornoz (The Moors play another bull in the ring using their cloaks), 1815-1816
Etching and aquatint on paper
7 15/16 x 12 1/16 in. (20.16 x 30.64 cm)
Goya follows Moratin's text closely in showing the "behind the back" suerte attributed to the Moors. The dance like movement of the matador contrasts sharply with the brutal and graceless attacks seen in earlier prints. Goya believed that it was under the Moors that the tauromaquia was developed into an art form.
