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.

Análisis artístico

The background of this preparatory drawing is populated by sketchy silhouettes, some of which are omitted from the final print or are better defined, such as the figure with their back to the viewer dressed in black in the background of the print.

It is possible that this drawing was an early sketch for the print, in which Goya had a clear idea of how he wanted to portray the elements of the foreground but had some doubts about how to resolve the background.
