Historia

See Sad presentiments of what must come to pass.

This drawing, along with the set of preparatory drawing for the rest of this series, formed part of the Carderera Collection and subsequently part of the Prado Museum, where it is currently housed.

Análisis artístico

The preparatory drawing for the print He Deserved It shows few differences from the final piece. The most significant differences are in the figure behind the body being dragged along the ground. The figure, shown against the light, brandishes a rod in the print, while in the drawing he seems to be holding either a longer rod or a firearm, although this is not entirely clear. The man in the foreground dragging the body while looking back at it is dressed in trousers and a shirt that are more precisely depicted in the drawing, while in the print it is not possible to tell what kind of clothing he is wearing since his figure is depicted as a simple white mark.
