See Sad presentiments of what must come to pass.

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.

The preparatory drawing for This too appears on the back of the page on which Goya sketched Barbarians! (Bárbaros!).

Análisis artístico

There are various differences between this preparatory sketch and the final print This too. The most significant change can be seen on the right-hand side of the drawing, which shows a structure that might be a building - perhaps a church or monastery - from which the monks are fleeing in panic. This building has been omitted from the final print, which shows a mountain in its place. Moreover, in the drawing, the habits of the monks depicted in the foreground are lifted up, a detail Goya also omitted in the final print and which might give a satirical edge to the image.
