Goya: Monk Talking to an Old Woman

The Goya miniatures were painted on small squares of ivory around four inches square that had been coated with a ground of black carbon on which he dripped water which removed the carbon to reveal the shadow of white ivory below. He would then look into this wetness and manipulate it to produce the images that he saw emerging from it (http://redtreetimes.com/2011/07/26/goyas-miniatures/).
