Etching and aquatint
Plate 62 from "Los Caprichos". Harris 97. Most likely from the eighth edition, made in the Calcografia for the Real Academia between 1905 and 1907. Numbered in the plate top right: "62."; titled in the plate lower center: "Quien lo creyera!". Printed on very fine, thin, smooth, wove paper, typical of the eighth edition. A fine impression in fine condition, aside from previous restoration work to repair tears along the platemark, in particular one long tear extending along the right platemark edge. Also, adhesive residue in the margins, not extending to the image. Original sheet measured 355 x 255 mm, this sheet cut to 311 x 247 mm.
