Francisco Jose De Goya Lucientes
- Art Funded
Although the sport is now widely regarded as cruel, Goya's images seem to contain little critical or satirical intention. The subjects of the thirty-three prints range from virtuoso performances, such as bullfighters who faced charging bulls with their feet manacled, to disasters, such as the 1801 fight during which a bull escaped from the ring and ran amok amongst the crowd, killing the Mayor of Torregon.
