A Fair in Madrid
Oil on canvas. 1779
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

Others people visit the other stalls around the Plaza de la Cebada, where all sorts of objects, including paintings, were sold. The background offers a view of the imposing Church of San Francisco el Grande. Goya presents certain types and customs of Madrid´s society, s

Boy with a Bird
Oil on canvas. 1780
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

Seated and seen from behind, a boy plays with a goldfinch. The bird’s mate is perched high up on a branch of the slender tree, its sinuous line emphasising the verticality of the composition.This cartoon was for one of the tapestries now in the Monastery of El Escorial. Like its pair Boy with Tree (P-789), this is a design for a narrow panel to hang between the corner of a room and a door or windo

Boys playing at Soldiers
Oil on canvas. 1779
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

This cartoon for an over-door tapestry depicts boys playing at soldiers, marching with their rifles on their shoulders or playing the drum. The principal boy’s lively, martial air and amusingly childlike pride as he looks out at the viewer make this one of Goya’s finest depictions of childhood. Childhood was one of the subjects that most interested Goya and in many of his scenes the children repre

Boy with Tree
Oil on canvas. 1780
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

Two boys are playing in front of a tree. One looks up as he grasps a branch as if about to shake it firmly while the other, in the background, has a basket, possibly for the fruit or birds’ eggs collected by his companion. Its size, similar to that of Boy with a Bird (P00790), shows that it, too, was intended for a narrow area beside a door, or on a pier between windows. This cartoon was for one o

The Blind Guitarist
Oil on canvas. 1778
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

The central motif of this work is the blind singer who travels to cities and towns, spreading the news, generally of a tragic or lurid character. Goya depicts the emotions — from interest to fascination— his message generates among the men, women and children looking on. According to Goya, the elegant gentleman in this cartoon was a foreigner. The painter also included unusual characters, such as

The Haw Seller
Oil on canvas. 1779
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

A street seller offers her wares in the form of woodland haws. Dressed as a maja and surrounded by cloaked men, she openly flirts with them, in contrast to the coy attitude of the woman in the pair to this scene, The Military Man and the Lady (P-781). This is one of a series of tapestry cartoons (P00779-P00784) intended for the bedroom of the Prince and Princess of Asturias (the future Carlos IV a

The Military Man and the Lady
Oil on canvas. 1779
Goya y Lucientes, Francisco de

A lady glances at a couple leaning on a wall. Her companion stands behind, with a military sword, as does a third, enigmatic character. A seated couple in the middle ground completes this scene of gallantry on the outskirts of the city. Goya presents a female type —an overly adorned or coquettish lady accompanied by her “suitor”, as lovers were called in the eighteenth century— that contrasts with

The piece belongs to a group of four busts of Ethiopians purchased for the Buen Retiro Palace in 1678 by Charles II. Their inspiration comes from models by the French sculptor Nicolas Cordier, the creator of the celebrated and enigmatic Moor (1607-12), a sculpture of alabaster and various coloured marbles made for Scipione Borghese and now preserved at the Musée du Louvre.

A piece created under the influence of Nicolas Cordier (1567-1612), a French sculptor and restorer resident in Rome who specialised in combining alabaster and marbles of various colours, and is considered the first modern sculptor to handle this type of subject. The bust, together with another three preserved at the Museo del Prado, was acquired by Charles II for the Buen Retiro Palace.
