This publication offers readers a synthesis of Goya’s drawn output by presenting more than 200 works created over the course of his career, from the drawings included in the Italian Sketchbook to those produced in Bordeaux, where the artist died in 1828.
The authors, José Manuel Matilla and Manuela B. Mena Marqués, curators at the Museo del Prado, have made their most recent research available in an accessible form to the general public, offering a personal and updated interpretation of Goya’s artistic universe through an essay and short commentaries on each of the selected drawings. Largely created outside the context of official commissions, these works highlight the artist’s originality and independence.
Drawing on the very latest research, it provides an up-to-date interpretation of Goya’s artistic vision, illuminating his originality, and how his opinions about the social and political events of his lifetime continue to be relevant today.
