1. The Burial of the Sardine (1812-14). Francisco de Goya y Lucientes (Spanish, 1746-1828). Oil on panel. Museo de la Real Academia de San Fernando, Madrid.

    The title refers to the culminating event of a three-day carnival in Madrid ending on Ash Wednesday. Masked and disguised revellers are seen dancing their way to the banks of the Manzanares, where a ceremonial sardine will be buried. The celebration takes on a sinister aspect due to the many masked and blank faces surrounding the gaily dancing women in white.
