Trust

1797 - 1798. Red wash, Red chalk on grey laid paper Not on display

In Goya´s drawings, padlocks are a recurrent symbol of closed minds. Also, in the literature of the time, a padlock shutting a mouth was frequently used to express a lack of critical judgment, or the submission of women, often sexual related, with the use of chastity belts. Goya´s handwritten title alludes to the falsehood of a trust that is not based on reciprocal sincerity but on mutual prohibition.
