Description: Lo que puede un Sastre! (What a tailor can do!) Original etching, burnished aquatint, burin and drypoint on paper from the first edition of 'Los Caprichos'. Goya's commentary: How often can some ridiculous creature be suddenly transformed into a presumptuous coxcomb who is nothing but appears to be much. That is what can be done by the ability of a tailor and the stupidity of those who judge things by their appearance.
