Goya's highly imaginative drawings receive the scholarly spotlight in this impressive catalog of the first exhibition devoted exclusively to drawings from Goya's eight private sketchbooks, which were dispersed after his death in 1828. More than 115 drawings from 35 collections are shown for the first time as full-page, actual-size color reproductions except for drawings from the largest album. The book includes introductory texts on Goya's art and draftsmanship, commentaries, and texts on each album. Artist and art critic Tom Lubbock contributes a meditative study on examples of human vulnerability and resolve in Goya's imagery. A monument to Goya's astonishing imagination and emotional force, the drawings show poses, motifs, and emotions that reach full expression in his paintings and prints. In addition to curating other important Goya exhibitions, art historian Wilson-Bareau coauthored the complete catalogue raisonn? in 1971. Highly recommended.
