Wonderful artwork by Goya, in which he uses the white of the paper to draw the attention to the figures with the highest symbolic value, like the dummy’s cloak and the figure rises his leg in a filthy act. The subjects in the foreground seem to be wood-dummies covered by a cloth. Their threatening attitude lead the observer to look people in second plan and to mock them.

Known under the title “Que guerrero!” , this artwork was published for the first time on the Parisien Review “ L’Art, Revue hebdomadaire illustré in 1877 (A.III, tomo II, pagg. 56,57) and printed by Francois Liénard. Created by Goya as an additional plate of the series “ Los Proverbos ”, together with other three plate, it was discarded by the old Master and for this reason called “Disparate conocido”.

Italian Version:

Francisco Goya, “ Disparate conocido” , o “ ¡Que Guerrero!

Acquaforte, acquatinta e punta secca su carta vergata color avorio. Stampa con inchiostro nero. Ottima conservazione.

Image Dim: cm 24.5 x 35.6; Dim: cm 29.2x 43.4, Passepartout: cm 49x69

Trascrizioni su lastra: “Goya inv. et sc. // Que Guerrero! / L’Art / Francois Liénard Imp. Paris.”

Meravigliosa opera di Goya, in cui è evidente l’uso tipico del bianco della carta per attirare l’attenzione sulle figure di più alto valore simbolico, come il mantello del fantoccio e la figura che, con gesto sconcio, alza la gamba . I soggetti in primo piano sembrano fantocci di legno coperti di stoffa. Il loro atteggiamento minaccioso induce l’osservatore a guardare le persone in secondo piano e deriderle.

Nota al pubblico con il nome “Que guerrero!” grazie alla pubblicazione sulla rivista parigina “ L’Art, Revue hebdomadaire illustré ” nel 1877 (A.III, tomo II, pagg. 56,57) fu stampata da Francois Liénard. Creata da Goya come tavola aggiuntiva, insieme ad altre tre, per la serie de “ Los Proverbios” , fu scartata all’ultimo momento dal maestro; perciò chiamata “Disparate conocido”
