El Medico
 (also known as The Doctor)
944 x 750 • 85 KB
A seated doctor warms his hands over some heated coals. The leafless tress behind and the doctor's gesture may be related to a winter theme. It is a cartoon for a tapestry to be hung over a door in the Royal Palace of El Pardo, hence the low viewpoint and bold colours. Goya had already produced tapestry designs featuring pastimes, customs and fashions.

Our Approach:
Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
