Even thus he cannot make her out

1797 - 1799. Etching, Aquatint, Drypoint on ivory laid paper, 306 x 201 mm.

Capricho 7, Even thus he cannot make her out is part of The Caprichos. The subject matter—social criticism—was a useful tool for both the artist and other members of the Enlightenment, and its intentions are clarified by Valentín Carderera’s handwritten notes at both the Museo del Prado and the Biblioteca Nacional. The former reads: How can he make her out? To know what she is, eyeglasses are not enough; one needs wisdom and knowledge of the world, and that is precisely what this poor gentleman lacks. In that same sense, the second note observes: Lecherous men are so blind that even with eyeglasses they do not recognize that the Lady they are favoring is a prostitute. The Museo del Prado has various works related to Capricho 7 (G00650 / G01932 / D04339 -verso-), and there is also a steel-plated copper plate from the same series at Calcografía Nacional in Madrid (200 x 150 mm, 306.28 g. No. 3433). (Text from: Matilla, J.M. and others: El libro de los Caprichos. Francisco de Goya: dos siglos de interpretaciones, 1799-1999. Catálogo de los dibujos, pruebas de estado, láminas de cobre y estampas de la primera edición, Museo Nacional del Prado, Madrid, 1999. pp. 21, 84).
