Goya, Jane Austen y el matrimonio

Francisco de Goya, La boda, 1792. Museo Nacional del Prado.

"Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance. If the dispositions of the parties are ever so well known to each other, or ever so similar before-hand, it does not advance their felicity in the least. They always contrive to grow sufficiently unlike afterwards to have their share of vexation; and it is better to know as little as possible of the defects of the person with whom you are to pass your life"

Jane Austen, Pride and prejudice (1813)

  1. Si hay alguien que hace una completa radiografía de su tiempo, sus gentes, sus prejuicios, sus "pecados" y sus costumbres... se llama Francisco de Goya.
    Un saludo.
