Don’t cry, idiot

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

Here Goya depicts the libidinous desires of monks and satirises the monastic orders, making use of scenes of goblins in order not to provoke the Censor. His commentary on the male figure’s true intentions is an ironic one: Poor little Frances! On her way to find the footman she meets the goblin but there is nothing to worry about: apparently, the little goblin is in a good mood, and he will not harm her.
