Unpublished work belonging to the series Homenaje a los Caprichos de Goya, in which the artist reimagines the caprices of Goya with the incorporation of characters and elements of the work of Hokusai, in this case, his Dancer.

The series of small canvases stands out among the latest works of Luis Royo, as it deals with a theme and format never treated before, resulting in these pieces in unique jewels in the collection of any coinossieur of the artist.

According to the manuscript that the Prado Museum treasures, Goya's engraving speaks of "many times it has been said whether men are worse than women, or the opposite. The vices of both come from bad education. Wherever men are perverse, women are also perverse. As good a head has the young lady who is represented in the picture as the greenhorn who is giving her conversation: and as for the old women, the one is as infamous as the other."

Over the years, Luis Royo's work has also played with the fragility and perversity of being, the duality between beauty and the beast is present in this piece, coupled with his perception of a post-apocalyptic future, very present since the publication of his book III Millelnnium.
