Historia

See Sad presentiments of what must come to pass.

This is one of the three dated prints in the series along with Treat them, then on to other matters and Charity.

The title was handwritten on the print by Goya in the first and only series that is known to have been printed at the time the works were created, which the artist gave to his friend Agustín Ceán Bermúdez. Therefore, the title was etched into the plate at a later date and left unchanged as of the first edition of the Disasters of War printed by the San Fernando Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Madrid in 1863, after the printing of the series in the possession of Ceán Bermúdez.

There is a surviving preparatory drawing for this print which is housed in the Prado Museum in Madrid.

Análisis artístico

In the middle of a landscape in which we can make out some architecture in the background, Goya has etched a group of corpses piled up on the ground. The violent postures of the bodies and the gaping mouths of many of the dead accentuate considerably the drama of the scene.

The painter has used short, horizontal etched lines to convey the ground on which the lifeless bodies are found. This dark area contrasts with the white of the corpses' faces and limbs, as well as the light-coloured clothing worn by some of them.

This print might be related with the previous one, no. 21, It Will Be the Same and the following print, no. 23, The Same Elsewhere, which also depict piles of dead bodies. In fact, this image could be interpreted as underlining the futility of the compassionate gesture depicted in print no. 21.

Eleanor Sayre has linked All This and More with the battle that took place during the first siege of Zaragoza in August 1808.

Conservación

The plate is stored in the National Chalcography (cat. 273)
