The Conjuration

:

This painting portrays the diabolical world of witchcraft and demons that tortures and confuses the mind. Dark and hideous, the conjurers loom over their victim. Are they a frightening hallucination, part of the midnight of the soul to which humankind is vulnerable, or are they real? For Goya, the two realities were the same: the deranged mind could victimise the body that it inhabited as easily as real witches could.
