Correction

Ca. 1797. Red chalk on laid paper Not on display

Concealed beneath what is apparently a scene of witchcraft lies a fierce attack on the oligarchy of the Church and nobility whose power, far from being based on Reason, makes use of blind faith and superstition: Without correction or censure it is impossible to advance in any science, and that of Witchcraft requires a particular talent, application, maturity, subtleness and docility to the advice from the Great Witchmaster who directs the Seminary of Barahona.
