Description - Goya Drawings by Jose Manuel Matilla
Drawings by Francisco de Goya presents the fruits of the research undertaken for the publication of a new catalogue raisonne of Goya's drawings, a subject to which the Museo del Prado has always devoted particular attention and which is one of the keystones of its collection. Since the publication of Gassier's catalogue in 1973 the number of drawings attributed to Goya has changed, giving rise to the need for a new catalogue raisonne which updates the enormous body of information accumulated over the course of two centuries of literature on this subject.
This book brings together more than 100 drawings by Goya from the Prado's own collections and from public and private ones around the world. It is presented as a chronological survey of his work that includes drawings from throughout his career, ranging from the Italian Sketchbook to the Bordeaux Albums. It also offers an up-to-date vision of the ideas that recurrently appear in Goya's work, revealing the ongoing and long-lasting relevance of his thinking.
