The Bulls of Bourdeaux


During his stay in Bordeaux, Goya discovered the new technique of lithography. He took it up with great enthusiasm, experimenting and discovering its possiblities with the use of grease pencils, using them with freedom, and spontaneity. Between 1824 and 1825 he made around thirteen lithographs, amongst which were the Bulls of Bordeaux, four lithographs of excellent technique which mark a return to the artist's interest in bullfighting.

To be completed.
