With his sharp powers of observation and his surreal imagination, in this series Goya brilliantly exposed the vices of his day and his country. He exposes the obscurantism of the Church, the corruption of those in power and office, as well as the failings of the ordinary people, in a series of prints by turn critical, enigmatic, and sometimes fantastical, peopled not only by beggars, prostitutes, drunkards and lechers, but also by ecclesiastics, lovers, hags, and gluttons.
