Exhibition | Solo la voluntad me sobra: Drawings by Goya

Posted in exhibitions by Editor on May 9, 2019

Opening this fall at The Prado:

Solo la voluntad me sobra: Dibujos de Goya
Museo Nacional del Prado, Madrid, 19 November 2019 — 16 February 2020

Curated by José Manuel Matilla and Manuela Mena

This exhibition is the result of the research undertaken for the publication of a new catalogue raisonné of Goya’s drawings, as a result of the collaboration agreement signed in 2014 between the Fundación Botín and the Museo del Prado. Since the publication of Gassier’s catalogue in 1973 the number of drawings attributed to Goya has changed, giving rise to the need for a new catalogue raisonné which updates the enormous body of information accumulated over the course of two centuries of literature on this subject.

The exhibition will bring together more than 100 drawings by Goya from the Prado’s own collections and from public and private ones around the world. It will be presented as a chronological survey of his work that includes drawings from throughout his career, ranging from the Italian Sketchbook to the Bordeaux Albums. It will also offer an up-to-date vision of the ideas that recurrently appear in Goya’s work, revealing the ongoing and long-lasting relevance of his thinking. The exhibition is curated by José Manuel Matilla (Museo Nacional del Prado Senior Curator Drawings and Prints) and Manuela Mena (Museo del Prado Senior Curator Eighteenth-Century Painting).
