The street / Real Observatorio Astronómico, Madrid

1796 - 1808. Wash, Pencil, Red chalk, Indian ink, Iron gall ink on grey laid paper. Not on display

This drawing occupies the front of the sheet that bears Sketch of the Royal Astronomical Observatory of Madrid (D04146 v) on the back. The image has frequently been considered a view of a street in Madrid from a descending aerial perspective. Its identification as the calle de Alcalá has been questioned because there are not enough elements to allow a precise identification of the buildings depicted. The hypothesis that it may be an urban view of Madrid raises few doubts, especially as the drawing on the other side is of the Royal Astronomical Observatory of Madrid.
