Prints and Drawings

Aun aprendo Álbum G. 54, Francisco de Goya y Lucientes, Ca. 1826, black pencil

The Museo del Prado has an interesting collection of drawings representative of various schools and dating from the 15th- to the 19th- centuries. The collection is made up of a core group originally from the Spanish royal collection to which 3,000 or so works from the Pedro Fernández Durán Bequest were subsequently added, along with various subsequent additions and the occasional donation. As a result, the drawings collection now numbers over 8,200 works.

The print collection numbers around 4,800 works of which more than 600 came from the library of José María Cervello, recently acquired by the Museum.
