Street Performers

1812 - 1820. Grey-brown wash on dark yellow laid paper. Not on display

Sketchbook F, sheet 7. The earliest works in this sketchbook were drawn on reused paper. The circular mark near the top left of this sheet is an artifact of a stamp that guaranteed authenticity by an expert or institution. The seal in blue ink at the top is that of the Museo Nacional de Pinturas or Museo de la Trinidad, where the drawing was previously housed. In a festive atmosphere, a dancer with a monkey performs to the music of a guitar before a motley and ebullient crowd of onlookers who have likely imbibed a bit too much wine, as indicated by the bottles in the foreground.
