Kindle Edition , 60 pages. It is likely that only then was it considered politically safe to distribute a sequence of artworks criticising both the French and restored Bourbons. The name by which the series is known today is not Goya's own. With these works, he breaks from a number of painterly traditions. He rejects the bombastic heroics of most previous Spanish war art to show the effect of conflict on individuals.
In addition he abandons colour in favour of a more direct truth he found in shadow and shade.
The series was produced using a variety of intaglio printmaking techniques, mainly etching for the line work and aquatint for the tonal areas, but also engraving and drypoint. As with many other Goya prints, they are sometimes referred to as aquatints, but more often as etchings. The series is usually considered in three groups which broadly mirror the order of their creation. The first 47 focus on incidents from the war and show the consequences of the conflict on individual soldiers and civilians.
The middle series plates 48 to 64 record the effects of the famine that hit Madrid in —12, before the city was liberated from the French. The final 17 reflect the bitter disappointment of liberals when the restored Bourbon monarchy, encouraged by the Catholic hierarchy, rejected the Spanish Constitution of and opposed both state and religious reform.
Goya's scenes of atrocities, starvation, degradation and humiliation have been described as the "prodigious flowering of rage"  The serial nature in which the plates unfold has led some to see the images as similar in nature to photography. Because Spain controlled access to the Mediterranean, it was politically and strategically important to the French. Napoleon took advantage of Charles's weak standing by suggesting the two nations conquer Portugal—the spoils to be divided equally between France, Spain and the Spanish Prime Minister, Manuel de Godoy , who would take the title "Prince of the Algarve ".
Seduced by the French offer, Godoy accepted, failing to detect the true motivations of either Napoleon or Ferdinand, who both intended to use the invasion as a ploy, to seize power in Spain. Under the guise of reinforcing the Spanish armies, 25, French troops entered Spain unopposed in November Ferdinand had been seeking French patronage,  but Napoleon and his principal commander, Marshal Joachim Murat , believed that Spain would benefit from rulers who were more progressive and competent than the Bourbons.

They decided that Napoleon's brother, Joseph Bonaparte , should be king. Like other Spanish liberals, Goya was left in a difficult position after the French invasion. He had supported the initial aims of the French Revolution , and hoped its ideals would help liberate Spain from feudalism to become a secular, democratic political system. There were two conflicts being fought in Spain: the resistance against the French threat, and a domestic struggle between the ideals of liberal modernisation and the pre-political incumbent ruling class.
The latter divide became more pronounced—and the differences far more entrenched—following the eventual withdrawal of the French. However, Goya had an instinctive dislike of authority,  and witnessed first-hand the subjugation of his countrymen by French troops. He visited many battle sites around Madrid to witness the Spanish resistance. Art historians broadly agree that The Disasters of War is divided into three thematic groupings—war, famine, and political and cultural allegories.
This sequence broadly reflects the order in which the plates were created. Few of the plates or drawings are dated; instead, their chronology has been established by identifying specific incidents to which the plates refer,  and the different batches of plates used, which allow sequential groups to be divined. For the most part, Goya's numbering agrees with these other methods.
For example, plate 1 was among the last to be completed, after the end of the war. In the early plates of the war grouping, Goya's sympathies appear to lie with the Spanish defenders. These images typically show patriots facing hulking, anonymous invaders who treat them with fierce cruelty. As the series progresses, the distinction between the Spanish and the imperialists becomes ambiguous. In other plates, it is difficult to tell to which camp the distorted and disfigured corpses belong. Critic Philip Shaw notes that the ambiguity is still present in the final group of plates, saying there is no distinction between the "heroic defenders of the Fatherland and the barbaric supporters of the old regime".
In many instances, the satirical and often sardonic ambiguity and play on Spanish proverbs found in Goya's carefully worded original titles is lost. Plate 9: No quieren They do not want to. An elderly woman wields a knife in defence of a young woman who is being assaulted by a soldier. Plate Tampoco Nor do these.
Spanish women were commonly victims of assault and rape. Plate Y no hay remedio And it cannot be helped. Prisoners executed by firing squads, reminiscent of The Third of May Plate Enterrar y callar Bury them and keep quiet. Atrocities, starvation and human degradation described as the "prodigious flowering of rage".
Plates 1 to 47 consist mainly of realistic depictions of the horrors of the war fought against the French. Most portray the aftermath of battle; they include mutilated torsos and limbs mounted on trees, like "fragments of marble sculpture". Civilians often followed armies to battle scenes.
If their side won, women and children would search the battlefield for their husbands, fathers and sons. If they lost, they fled in fear of being raped or murdered. The group begins with Tristes presentimientos de lo que ha de acontecer Gloomy presentiments of what must come to pass , in which a man kneels in the darkness with outstretched arms. The following plates describe combat with the French, who—according to art critic Vivien Raynor—are depicted "rather like Cossacks , bayoneting civilians", while Spanish civilians are shown "poleaxing the French.
In his India ink wash drawing We cannot look at this —24 , he examined the idea of a humiliated inverted body with pathos and tragedy, as he did to comical effect in The Straw Mannequin — Unlike most earlier Spanish art, Goya's rejects the ideals of heroic dignity. He refuses to focus on individual participants; though he drew from many classic art sources, his works pointedly portray the protagonists as anonymous casualties, rather than known patriots.
What courage! When all the cannoneers had been killed, Agustina manned and fired the cannons herself. Plate No llegan a tiempo They do not arrive in time. Two women, one with a child in her arms, huddle behind the ruins of a building to lay a third woman to rest in the ground. What good is a cup? Two starving women lie on the ground, one near death while a third kneels by their side and offers a cup to the dying woman.
Plate No hay quien los socorra There is no one to help them. On a hillside, three women lie dead and a lone figure weeps in mournful grief. Plate Las camas de la muerte The beds of death.
Broken (Witches of Santa Anna #15)
A woman walks past dozens of wrapped bodies awaiting burial. The second group, plates 48 to 64, detail the effects of the famine which ravaged Madrid from August until after Wellington 's armies liberated the city in August Starvation killed 20, people in the city that year. The famine was a result of many factors. For example, French invaders and Spanish guerrillas and bandits blocked paths and roads into the city, hampering the provision of food.
Goya does not focus on the reasons for the shortage, nor does he apportion blame to any one party. Instead, he is concerned only with its effect on the population. Goya's focus is on the darkened masses of dead and barely alive bodies, men carrying corpses of women, and bereaved children mourning for lost parents.
Unhappy mother! He suggests that the space between the small girl sobbing and the corpse of her mother represents "a darkness that seems to be the very essence of loss and orphanhood". Plate No saben el camino They do not know the way. A long line of male prisoners extending for a great distance, bound together with rope, walk across a mountainous countryside. Plate Contra el bien general Against the common good. A monstrous winged devil sits upon a rock and writes a book, perhaps a book of fate, or a book of evil. Plate Esto es lo peor!
Ecology – Elizabeth Creely
This is the worst! A wolf writes orders on a scroll on his lap assisted by a friar. They are giving orders to a long line of suffering, poor, and hungry people. A long line of people are chasing after a gigantic bird. Although peace was welcomed, it produced a political environment that was in ways more repressive than before. The new regime stifled the hopes of liberals such as Goya, who used the term "fatal consequences" to describe the situation in his title for the series.
After the six years of absolutism that followed Ferdinand's return to the throne on 1 January , Rafael del Riego initiated an army revolt with the intent of restoring the Constitution. By March, the king was forced to agree, but by September , after an unstable period , a French invasion supported by an alliance of the major powers had removed the constitutional government. The last prints were probably not completed until after the Constitution was restored, though certainly before Goya left Spain in May Their balance of optimism and cynicism makes it difficult to relate them directly to particular moments in these rapidly moving events.
Many of these images return to the savage burlesque style seen in Goya's earlier Caprichos. In plate 74, the wolf, representing a minister, quotes from the fable—"Miserable humanity, the fault is thine"—and signs with Casti's name. The print "lays the blame for their rulers' barbarity on the victims' own acceptance of it".
A number of plates in this group reveal a scepticism towards idolatry of religious images. And Cam and Natalia will be forced to look deep into their hearts and decide if they can stay together when everyone and everything is against them. With new revelations, new enemies, and new surprises, Season Three of the Witches of Santa Anna proves that true love conquers all and that nothing — not even pure evil — can change your destiny Read more Read less.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I really like the story line BUT these books are way to short for the price, the only reason I got them all was because I did not pay close enough attention to that and got them all at once. I love this series. I get so into it that time goes by so fast. I can't wait to read the next book. This series could easily be turned into a great movie. I hope that you like the series as much as I have. Will be purchasing the series soon.
