Goya settled in Madrid in 1775 where he collaborated in conducting cartoons for tapestries from the Royal Factory of Santa Bárbara.
The exhibition shows how these tapestry cartoons painted by Goya are fundamental to deepen the knowledge of the artist.
The catalogue is divided into eight major sections covering the complete subject of the tapestry cartoons: Hunting, Divertimentos, Social Classes, Music and Dance, Children, Dreams, The four Seasons and the Air.
The essays are written by Janis Tomlinson, Retrato del artista en su juventud ("Portrait of the Artist in His Youth"), Manuela Mena, "A lo lexos se ve Madrid". Goya y los cartones para tapices: servicio al rey y ensayo de ideas ("Madrid from the Distance: Goya and His Tapestry Cartoons - At the Service of the King and Laboratory of Ideas") and other scholars like Gudrun Maurer, Virginia Albarrán, Gemma Cobo, Almudena Sánchez, Laura Alba and Jaime García Máiquez.
