Artist: Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes, 1746-1828
Title: Los Proverbios: Disparate pobre
Date: 1864
Medium: Etching, aquatint and drypoint on wove paper
Description: (Two Heads are Better than One), Plate 11 from the complete set of 18 etchings of "Los Proverbios," fifth edition. Published by the Real Academia de Noble Artes de San Fernando, Madrid, 1904. With margins. Goya created his final and most enigmatic print series in the years between 1815 and 1824. For reasons that remain unclear, 40 years passed before their publication in 1864. The series was published under the title “Los Proverbios,” although Goya's own captions for the working proofs include the word “disparates,” meaning “follies.” As a result, this print series is known by both titles. The proverbs assigned to each plate were added upon publication.
