Is there no one to untie us?

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

The duplicitous nature of relations between men and women is one of the principal themes of the Caprichos. In this case, Goya overtly condemns marriages of convenience that are not based on love: A man and a woman tied together with a rope, struggling to set themselves free and crying for someone to untie them quickly? Either I am mistaken or they are two people who were forced to marry.
