''El pelado'' from Ybides

1812 - 1823. Grey-brown wash on laid paper Not on display

Manuel Millán, nicknamed El pelado from Ybides or Ibdes, a village in the Calatayud region, was a bloodthirsty Aragonese bandit from the second half of the seventeenth century. He was famous during Goya´s time due to the printed ballads recounting his atrocities. This highly dramatic drawing, achieved through the use of intense and very expressive brush strokes, depicts the murder of a victim tied up in the middle of a field, subtly suggested by a tree and the horizon line.

Because of its technique and theme, this Album seems to have been produced around the same time as Album C, roughly between 1812 and 1820. Despite its thematic variety, the Album presents a consistent ambiance, where representations of misery, tragedy or violence predominate. Based on events more or less real, but not always contemporary, Goya provides a panorama of the oppressive atmosphere of the time of the Peninsular War and the immediate post-war period.
