Footnotes

  • THE FIRST COMPLETE EDITION. "In this remarkable series, Goya has immortalised the valour and skill of his [bull-fighting] contemporaries" (Harris). First published in 1816 in a series of 33 plates, and again in 1855, this third edition printed in Paris by Loizelet is the first to include seven "rejected plates". As with the previous edition Harris notes the "edition appears to have been small".
