Teacher witch giving lessons of bravery to her disciple on the latter’s first flight. Training witches

1796 - 1797. Pencil, Iron gall ink, Black chalk lines on laid paper Not on display

This preparatory drawing for the etching Capricho 66, There it goes (G02102) is part of The Dreams, a series of twenty-six pen-and-ink drawings that serve as the basis for the Caprichos. Headed by Dream 1. The Author Dreaming, which became number 43 in the definitive and expanded Caprichos. The subject matter was common in representations of that period. The preparatory drawing’s composition shows a witch riding on a mischievous devil, as does the corresponding print (G02154). Valentín Carderera’s handwritten commentary at the the Museo del Prado in Madrid reads: There goes a witch, riding on a mischievous devil. This poor devil whom everyone mocks is still useful at times. The Museo del Prado has various works related to Dream 5 (G02154/G00656), and there is also a steel-plated copper plate from the same series at Calcografía Nacional in Madrid (210 x 167 mm, 586.67 g. No. 3492). The mark of the plate is visible on the drawing as a result of its tracing on the copper plate (210 x 165 mm), as are 26-27 mm vertical laid lines (Text from: Matilla, J.M. and others: El libro de los Caprichos.
