Though the specific work of Goya's used by Baudelaire and, in turn, Clark to suggest that Manet might have learned from him how to produce a picture "balanced between incompatible modes" is Los Caprichos and not Desastres, Clark's concatenation of Goya and Manet seems to provide adequate license to justify the Chapmans' choice of Goya.
