Historia

This work forms a pair with another sketch showing the opposite side of the cupola. Both were catalogued by Mayer in 1925. In 1962 they were sold at Sotheby's. Their last known location is in the H. Oppenheimer collection in Johannesburg.

Análisis artístico

This sketch in oil paint represents the central scene of the cupola of the Chapel of San Antonio de la Florida in which the saint brings a dead man back to life.

Gassier points to the notable differences in style between this set of sketches and those housed in the Villagonzalo collection. The attribution to Goya is much disputed.
