Otra locura suya en la misma plaza

Francisco Goya (in 1816)

Goya’s print series ‘La Tauromaquia’ includes scenes from the history of bullfighting. Both devotee and critic, the artist appears to have had a somewhat more ambivalent attitude towards this Spanish tradition than was previously assumed. The title of this composition is linked to the previous plate in the series illustrating a feat performed by the bullfighter Martincho in the ring at Saragossa.
