All framed and glazed. Notes: 'La Tauromaquia' is an album of 33 etchings first published by Goya in 1816. Several editions followed, of which the third edition by Loizelet in Paris in 1876 included seven additional plates, inventoried A to G. Goya was almost 70 when he began the plates. He had made 50 preparatory red chalk drawings, which he engraved in two steps: first a few trial proofs taken from the pure etching state, then with aquatint in order to vary lighting and dramatize the scene. He had seen many bullfights growing up and he knew or had seen many great bullfighters. He depicted the exploits of the most famous bullfighters of his time: Pedro Romero, inventor of the classic rules, Ceballos, from Argentina, Martincho, well known for his acrobatics and Pepe Illo, illustrious for his exuberance. Although the set was based on the historical text of Moratin and traced the evolution of bullfighting through the years until 1800, Goya was not concerned with historically accurate depictions of the costumes and settings. He often simplified the compositions so that only the most essential shapes and characters appear. This set of plates have been described by many commentators as the forerunners of impressionism, expressionism and even abstraction. Long after Goya's death the Calografia Nacional of Madrid produced additional editions, starting with a small one in 1855 (on wove) and including a third edition in 1876 (on laid), a seventh in 1937 and 150 sets in 1990.
