To the market

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

A good number of the drawings in this Album portray scenes from the daily lives of humble country people. With intense strokes of washes applied with a brush, Goya created compositions depicting characters in unsettling atmospheres. Here, a couple loaded with bales walks together with their daughter and a small dog through a desolate landscape subtly insinuated. Goya provides no details to reveal the nature of their displacement, whether they are fleeing from something, or if their need to make a living requires them to ply the roads with all their gear, we don´t know.

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.
