This work has belonged to a number of different collections: the collection of Federico Madrazo, in Madrid; that of Edwuards, Paris; Durand-Ruel, Paris; Bamberger, Paris; M. Trotti, Paris; M. Knoedler, London; and that of R.S. Clark, in the United States.

Análisis artístico

Asensio Julià, also known as "El Pescadoret" ("The Little Fisherman"), was first painted by Goya many years earlier in his studio. Here he is shown seated before a table, drawing with a piece of charcoal. He is dressed in a dark outfit, the only brighter part being his shirt, around the collar of which he wears a black tie. The striking top hat he wears gives him a picturesque air.

His face, which is looking out at the viewer, appears serious and preoccupied.

According to Gudiol, the whole work contains a great harmony between the different visual elements: lines, light, shade, volume and flat areas.

 

For further biographical information, see Asensio Julià “El Pescadoret”.
