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

The absence of a title written by Goya opnes up the possibilities of interpretation for his drawings, where three figures are arranged in different postures in front of a fence positioned in the background. Two of them are trying to help a third one who has fallen to the ground. The austerity and elegance of the charitable young woman at the left, highlighted by the white of her dress, is a reminiscent of the women who would later be featured in some of the most dramatic scenes of Goya´s Disasters of War.

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.
