Le descañona, also known as She fleeces him, is a painting created by Francisco de Goya between 1796 and 1797. The artwork is a satirical commentary on the Spanish society of that time period, particularly focusing on the relationship between men and women. The painting depicts a scene where a woman, presumably an innkeeper or tavern keeper, is taking advantage of a drunk man by stealing his money while he is asleep. The title "She fleeces him" implies that she is deceiving and exploiting the man for her own benefit. Goya's use of sharp contrasts in the painting highlights the themes of social inequality and the vulnerability of the working class. The woman is dressed in bright colors, standing out against the dark background, while the man lies helplessly on a bed, surrounded by shadows. This technique creates a sense of drama and emphasizes the power imbalance between the two characters. Overall, Le descañona serves as a critique of Spanish society during Goya's time and raises questions about morality, class, and gender dynamics in the late 18th century.
