Es más divertido con su amante! from *Los Caprichos: after Goya” (Sheila Newbery, 2012)

“Es más divertido con su amante!” (It’s more fun with her lover!) from Los Caprichos: after Goya: platinum palladium prints inspired by the 18th-century master Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes’ well known album of eighty satirical aquatints, published in 1799.

‘Caprichos’ means literally: whims. Images from this series are photographed from video source  and  printed on Revere Platinum. In keeping with the spirit of Goya’s mordant titles, I’ve given each of the images a caption — in Spanish.
