Los caprichos are a set of 80 prints in aquatint and etching created by the Spanish artist Francisco Goya in 1797 and 1798, and published as an album in 1799. The prints were an artistic experiment: a medium for Goya's condemnation of the universal follies and foolishness in the Spanish society in which he lived.

Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes was an Aragonese Spanish painter and printmaker.

Los Caprichos is a book of Goya's prints (a medium to which he was fairly new at this point in his life), accompanied by short captions. They are fantastic (in a fantasy sense). Allegorical, critical, biting. Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes was an Aragonese Spanish painter and printmaker. Goya was a court painter to the Spanish Crown and a chronicler of history. He has been regarded both as the last of the Old Masters and as the first of the moderns.

Dover Fine Art, History of Art. English. By (author) Francisco Jose De Goya.

Considered Goya's most brilliant work, this collection combines corrosive satire and exquisite technique to depict 18th-century Spain as a nation of grotesque monsters sprung up in the absence of reason. 80 plates, Prado manuscript included.
User reviews
Goya's Caprichos is a fascinating work of art, but this edition is very disappointing. The reproductions here are of newspaper quality – most are too dark or too faint, with visible digital artifacts that make it obvious that a computer was used to scale the images. Most of the original etching lines are blurred and are invisible, so fine details are lost. Backgrounds and background figures are indistinguishable.
These prints are in the public domain and all 80 large, high quality scans can be seen on Wikipedia. The versions in the book are unacceptably inferior to the ones available online for free.
First I love Goya's work. If you like bizarre and unusual images you'll like this book. Nothing obscene but just bizarre imagery. The book has all of his woodblock prints from Caprichos. Google Caprichos and you'll get a small portion of the ones in this book. This book is unique because it is the first that contains all the caprichos (captions), their spanish translations into English, and the original introduction. The original set of these, if I'm correct were destroyed by the Inquisition as a way to censor is his critique of the corrupt church. For me this was a rare moment of taking a chance on a book and getting exactly what i could hope for. I hope you enjoy. Before you buy check out the images on a search engine. If you like what you see buy it!
An old Hungarian proverb: 'tell the truth, then run'. Goya's work, especially The Caprichos, is brutally honest, painful, and absolutely essential for just these reasons. The perfect antidote to our frivolous complacency. Speaking of which: the price ain't bad, either.
This book is phenomenal. The only thing I could say against it is it's a bit small, but I believe the images are actual size, so of course there's not much to be done. A good hardcover edition would show these off very well. These Dover art books are a great, cheap way to get access to images like these if you can't commit to a fine edition or, should you be so fortunate, one of the original prints themselves.

Goya one-upped Surrealism, Expressionism, and much more, a hundred years before the fact. These prints take you on a dream journey through some startlingly original imagery that scrutinizes human social engagement with an unsparing eye. Cynical would be too soft a word for some of the images, but somehow it's hard to disagree with Goya's positions. You feel like people were often that empty in Spanish society of the time. And what about today?

As for the formal side, the etchings are technically inventive, uninhibited, masterful, confident, and often understated. Goya is content to let a few lines and a dark mass of aquatint evoke a whole interior, alleyway, or landscape.

In a way, these prints also relate to Edward Gorey, Tim Burton, and many more. In fifty years you'll be able to rack up a new breed of descendents. Their influence, I'm sure, will be timeless.
Eighty wonderful and weird etchings and aquatints illustrating Goya's criticism of foolish behavior in Spain in 1799.
Goya outdid himself. If you are new to Goya please try this book. You won't be disappointed.
Love them!
This great sequence of etchings is well served by this excellent book - the reproductions are clear and the text is informative. Who could ask for more?
