Aguarda Que Te Unten (Wait Till You’ve Been Anointed)

1799/later printing. Etching, numbered “67” and titled in plate above and below image, artist’s name in an unknown hand in pencil in lower margin, 21.6 x 15.3cm. Minor foxing to image upper right, slight soiling to margins.

Plate 67 from Los Caprichos, 8th edition of 12, published by Calcografia for Real Academia 1905-07.

The eighty etchings of Los Caprichos were the first Goya produced for sale as a single set. In 1803, fearful of the Spanish Inquisition, Goya relinquished the plates to Carlos IV for the Royal Calcografia, in return for a lifetime annuity for his son Javier to pursue a career as an artist. The plates remain with the Calcografia, and have been issued in ensuing years by that institution. Ref: Harris #102.
