This luscious book is absolutely overflowing with wonderful bullfight related artwork. 93 reproductions to be exact. By the likes of Delacroix, Solana, Oscar Dominguez, Picasso, Bacon, Andre Masson, Renoir, Guerineau, and dozens more. 2 by Dali ( one of which we have never seen. Because it was painted especially for a bullfight in his honor). Over a dozen by Goya. 4 by Manet. Including his masterpiece 'the dead toreador'. Sado-erotic drawings by the surrealist Masson. A stage curtain by Picasso. Plus there are photos of bullfight statues and posters galore. . . . Oh yea then theres the gore. Well after all this is an anti-bullfighting book. Don't worry only about four photos.
Note that this is not a official art book and thus the art reproductions do not have any explanatory captions.. That's ok because this is a wonderful bullfight art collection. Well look here the author is a professor of art. Great job Ms. Elisabeth.
If you're a member of PETA, this book may be of interest. If you're an aficionado looking for a scholarly examination of bullfighting's past you will need to look elsewhere.
I give the book two stars, instead of one, because of the quality of the photos and paintings liberally supplied throughout the text.
