Monk Guzzling from a Large Bowl

1824 - 1828. Pencil on grey laid paper. Not on display

Bordeaux Sketchbook [H], sheet 63. Filling the pictorial space with his huge bulk, the monk barely fits into his chair as he eats from a wash basin, using a spoon and fork to avidly swallow the broth and stab the pieces of meat. All his attention is focused on the food, and his wide-open mouth signifies Gluttony, one of the Seven Deadly Sins that he has undoubtedly damned from the pulpit. Goya used this idea in Capricho 13, They Are Hotheaded, but here his treatment is more realistic, turning it into a metaphorical evocation of the clergy’s insatiable appetite for this and other things, which led to a series of confiscations of their lands and possessions, the first under Charles IV in 1798.
