Over 35 years, alongside his paintings and prints, Francisco Goya expressed his creative genius in eight albums of drawings. Split up after his death, their pages scattered across various collections, the albums remain little known. This book reunites over 100 of the drawings, almost all in colour at actual size, including both sides of double-sided sheets, and there are detailed commentaries on each album and each drawing. The album drawings reveal Goya's astonishing powers of invention and observation. They include flights of fantasy, nightmare and biting satire, and show the artist's imagination at work on a vast range of subjects - a pageant of carnival and Holy Week, the upheavals of war, images of childhood and old age, witches and charlatans - in a reflection, both violent and tender, of the world around him.
