Two famous lovers of Pepe-Hillo
Pepe-Hillo (José Delgado Guerra) was a bullfighter from Seville who worked around the 18th century. "La Nueva Lidia" refers to "toro de lidia," or a Spanish bullfighting bull. This beautiful print is part of a collection of Spanish bullfighting works showing the "historia del toreo," that were part of a periodical. It gives viewers a look into the culture of bullfighting we see today.
