This week our entry is short and sweet: “Friar Pedro Shoots El Maragato as his Horse Runs Off,” by 18th/19th century Spanish painter Francisco de Goya.
This is a painting of a friar calmly shooting a man in the butt at point-blank range. I really have very little to add.
However, as that makes for an awfully short post, here is another picture with a friar theme! I came across it during my recent journey to Los Angeles in the El Pueblo area. It was unlabelled so I do not know the title or artist.
I DO know that it depicts this nightmare I have every time I open a book that a baby (or adult dwarf?) in a diaper and cape will leap forth and attempt to poke my eyes out. Because you never know where anti-learning babies are hiding.
