30. Porque Esconderlos?
Medium: Etching, burnished aquatint and drypoint
Size: 215 x 150 mm
Description: Porque esconderlos? (Why hide them?) Original etching, drypoint and burnished aquatint from the first edition of 'Los Caprichos'. Goya's commentary: The answer is easy. The reason he doesn't want to spend them and does not spend is because although he is over eighty and can't live another month, he still fears that he will live long enough to lack money. So mistaken are the calculations of avarice.
