15th - 20th Cent. Masters
The matador's size and prominence in the composition underscore his role as the central figure in this scene. As our gaze shifts to the defeated bull, our attention is drawn to the lance protruding from its body. The lance, symbolizing the intervention of the picador, adds another layer of complexity to the scene. It represents the physical struggle between the man and the bull, where the bull's power is met with the forceful intervention of the picador's weapon.
