This is an original 1937 halftone print of "... This Also." This print was one of 82 prints Goya created in response to the 1808 Dos de Mayo Uprising, the Peninsula War, and the Bourbon Restoration. The prints were originally named "Fatal Consequences of Spain's Bloody War with Bonaparte, and Other Emphatic Caprices," but are currently known as "The Disasters of War." The series was not published until 35 years after Goya's death in 1863. The series depicts war and the ugliness of it, and portrays the emotions of both the victims and the opposition.

Francisco Goya (1746-1828) was a Spanish painter who retained the office of court painter for Spanish royalty. Goya is considered the last Old Master, but is also thought to be one of the first modern painters. He was a printmaker and an oil painter and served as a role model for Picasso and Manet. He is known for "The Disasters of War" as well as his "Black Paintings." The "Black Paintings" was a set of 14 scenes oil painted onto the plaster walls of his home, "Quinta del Sordo." They evoke an unsettling feeling, and depict many mythical beings. The "Black Paintings" can be seen at the Museu del Prado in Madrid, Spain, but are unfortunately damaged due to the restoration process-- as the paintings had to be transferred from the plaster walls to a canvas support.
