Goya (on the back in large letters).

Historia

As described in rec. no. 2.4.1, this sketch was submitted to the Building Committee of the Metropolitan Chapter of Zaragoza on 27 January 1772.

It initially belonged to Juan Martín Goicoechea, a friend of Goya. It was then inherited by the Counts of Sobradiel; there is a record of its belonging to María Pilar Alcibar, the second wife of the Count of Gabarda, in 1867. When the exhibition in homage to Goya was held in Zaragoza in 1928, it was in the possession of Sancho de Castro. It was acquired by José Gudiol Ricart from Barcelona in around 1965. In 2003 it was purchased by Ibercaja.

The frame bears a label that confirms that it formed part of the exhibition entitled ‘Exposición de Arte Retrospectivo' held in Zaragoza in 1908, at which time it belonged to the Count of Sobradiel.

Análisis artístico

To a large extent the sketch corresponds to the large format fresco, although it does feature some subtle variations. There are alterations also visible to the naked eye, which have been well documented using radiography techniques.

It is a composition in the baroque style which clearly displays the Italian influence that the artist had absorbed during his recent stay in that country.

The contrasting light and shade which gives a sense of space to the composition is more notable in the sketch than in the final painting.

The canvas features a black ground visible through the craquelure which affects the work. The vivid colour palette dominated by the golden tones used for the skies accentuates the delicate technique used by Goya for this sketch.
