Los disparates (The Follies), also known as Proverbios or Sueños, is a series of prints by Francisco Goya between 1815 and 1823. The preferred series title "Disparates" (Follies) is derived from manuscript titles containing the word "Disparate" on fourteen of the working proofs, The enigmatic album of 22 prints (in the first place 18 - 4 works were added later) which is the last major series of prints by Goya, which the artist created during the last years of his life. The scenes of the Disparates, which are difficult to explain, include dark, dream-like scenes that scholars have related to political issues, traditional proverbs and the Spanish carnival.
Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes (March 30th 1746 - Bordeaux, April 16th 1828), Francisco Goya, the Spanish painter and printer, was one of the rare artists that, through their work, not only gain the recognition and admiration of their contemporaries, but influence the development of future art.
Born in Fuentedetodos to a middle-class family originating from Aragona, he was the forth of six brothers.
Studying with José Buzàn y Martinez, and in Madrid under Velasquez, and entered the group of R. Mengs where he met Tiepolo. After going to Roma and Venice, he returned to Spain to paint the dome of Santa Maria of Pilar basilica in Zaragoza with frescoes showing Tiepolo's influence. In Madrid he was uncomfortable with his academic style, despite the fame gained in the king's court for his very lively style and refined artistic taste. He had started his most productive and busy period of his life. He returned to Zaragoza to paint frescoes in the cathedral (commissioned by Bayeu) but left the work incomplete and instead started to paint portraits and also started “Caprichos”.
Goya's main success was under the reign of Carlo IV but when the power of Ferdinandi VII increased under the French occupation, he went into exile in Bordeaux. In 1799 he painted the family portrait of Carlo IV and attracted the friendship of the king. Goya was close to the poor, something that is reflected in the “Desastres de la guerra” print, and to which he dedicated his work during his stay in France. Goya travelled to Zaragoza to paint the companies of the Spanish resistance, but left Spain for Bordeaux after the onset of deafness and painted the Milkmaid of Bordeaux. He died in Bordeaux in 1828.
