The flight of witches by Francisco de Goya

The flight of witches by Francisco de Goya

Another work for the Duke of Osuna, like the Capricios series, depicts scenes of witchcraft. Three figures in hats grabbed a naked man in the air. In addition to them, one can observe a poor fellow who has closed his ears and a running man in a white cloak, with his right hand reproducing a gesture designed to protect himself from evil evil eye. This painting was acquired by the Prado Museum in 1999.

Francisco Goya, although he created a lot of works on mystical subjects, treated her with humor and disbelief, seeing, probably, only interesting scenes and images in mysterious rituals and beliefs.
