Goya never actually painted the cartoon for this scene, which is one of his masterpieces, and the most popular of a series intended for the bedroom of the infantas in Madrid's El Pardo Palace. The project was suspended following the death of Carlos III. Here, the painter manages to capture the sensation of life and the hustle and bustle of a crowd sitting in the meadow. The landscape opens onto th

As in the other four cartoons with which it forms a set (P03311 to P03314, P03534), destined for the decoration of the Princess of Asturias’s dressing room at the palace of El Pardo, the artist has chosen a children’s pastime as a decorative motif, in this case the game of cup-and-ball.

Scenes of street vendors proliferated in eighteenth-century Spain, as they had in France, England and Italy, both because of the picturesque nature of their street cries and their apparel, and because they were regarded from then on as a true reflection of national identity. Here, however, Bayeu gives his carnation seller a curiously melancholy air, hitherto unexplained.

The present work consists of thirteen small sketches for tapestry cartoons which were painted by Francisco’s brother, Ramón Bayeu. It may have been produced more as a record of the compositions intended for the same room than as a picture to be presented to the King. The scenes depict customs and people of different ages and social classes: children and adolescents at play, the gallantry of
