Signed 'Dali' in the plate lower right and signed 'Goya' in the plate lower left 227 years after the birth of Spanish master Francisco Goya, Salvador Dali had an idea to transform Goya's Los Caprichos and present a new work. Goya's Los Caprichos was an artistic experiment exposing the foolish superstitions in 18th century Spanish society. Goya described the series as depicting "the innumerable foibles and follies to be found in any civilized society, and from the common prejudices and deceitful practices which custom, ignorance, or self-interest have made usual". The body of work was withdrawn from public sale before their planned release in 1799. Only a formal order from King Carlos IV kept Goya from being called before the Spanish Inquisition. In 1973 Salvador Dali created a metamorphosis of Goya's suite into a colorful surrealist masterpiece. Each piece is hand signed by Salvador Dali and is a genuine rarity for Dali and Goya admirers.
