Goya – Witches’ Sabbath or The Great He-Goat (1821–1823)

Witches’ Sabbath or The Great He-Goat (1821–1823) is one of Goya’s Black Paintings, currently housed in Madrid’s Museo del Prado, the most beautiful museum I have ever been to. To see this painting, with Saturn Devouring His Son close to it, was thrilling. The Prado has Goya’s Black Paintings in a separate darkened room, with low accent lighting bringing out the nocturnal feel of the works.
