‘Witches’ Sabbath (The Great He-Goat)’

In one of the more obscure and less-visited galleries of Madrid’s world-famous Museo Nacional Del Prado, the curious visitor can come face to face with a singularly bewitching painting.

Witches’ Sabbath (The Great He-Goat) is one of the haunting “Black Paintings” artist Francisco Goya created during the later years of his life. Goya, who by then was nearly deaf and suffering from profound depression, retreated into the isolation of his studio and covered his walls with these macabre masterpieces. This particular creation is a deeply disturbing painting that has the power to shock, even though it is centuries old.
