11 (on the lower left-hand corner), A la vuelta hay otro dibujo ("on the reverse is another drawing", handwritten but not by Goya).
This drawing, along with the set of preparatory drawing for the rest of the prints in this series, formed part of the Carderera Collection and was subsequently acquired by the Prado Museum where it is currently housed.
This preparatory drawing shows some differences from the final print: the composition of the drawing is reversed, and there is no armchair in the background. The woman in the foreground is carrying a child in one of her arms: in the print the figure of the child is foreshortened with its head facing the viewer, while in this drawing we can see the child's legs as opposed to its head.
The beams are distributed differently in the print in comparison with this preparatory drawing, occupying less space in the print, distributed more in the centre of the composition, while in the drawing they create a more lattice-like structure.
The print still shows the mark of the copperplate
