About this work:

Here we have a small edition, individually coloured by hand, of both works. Through the individual addition of colour, these etchings have become original works.

The first one, entitled El náufrago o el colmo de la desdicha (The Ship-wrecked Sailor or the Ultimate in Misfortune), shows random destiny seen through the prism of sagacious, if somewhat cruel, wit. Here Mingote makes us think about the absurd and the incomprehensible, which is how the force that rules humanity might be seen. The poor sailor is quite literally &#171in God's hands&#187, a god who might well by the mythological Poseidon. Or perhaps it is an ironic parody of the famous gesture of the Christian god painted by Michaelangelo in his fresco The Creation of Adam in the Sistine Chapel. The god evoked by Mingote is stretching out his hand to a paradoxically minute Adam, not to give him life but to flick him out of the universe.

In La heroica we can see the exuberant beauty of a naked woman in the arms of a knight in armour. The mismatched couple seem to be fleeing the castle that rises up behind them, searching for a freer, happier future. It is the contradiction of the lonely man, unable to confront reality unless he knows he is protected, even if it is by oppressive armour. Beside him is shown the simple beauty of the naked woman who, in contrast is not ashamed to reveal herself exactly as she is.
