Today, Queen Letizia undertook the only engagement scheduled for this week. She attended the opening of the exhibition ‘Goya Drawings – Only the will is left over’ at the Prado National Museum.
The exhibition is showing the work of Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes in chronological order. The artwork includes his drawings, Italian Notebooks and Bordeaux Albums.
Goya was a Spanish romantic painter and printmaker. He is considered the most important Spanish artist of the late 18th and early 19th centuries and throughout his long career were a commentator and chronicler of his era.
Upon, arrival, Queen Letizia toured the Museum and held a brief meeting with the Royal Board of the Prado National Museum and with the curators of the exhibition José Manuel Matilla and Manuela Mena.
This exhibition is the result of the work carried out to prepare a new chronological catalogue of Goya’s drawings through a collaboration agreement signed in 2014 by the Botín Foundation and the Prado Museum.
Since the 1973 Gassier catalogue was published, the number of drawings has undergone modifications and there has been a need to develop a new reasoned catalogue in which the huge collection of his work from more than two centuries ago can be updated.
The exhibition brings together more than a hundred of Goya’s drawings, coming from the Prado’s own collections and from public and private collections around the world.
In addition, it provides a modern vision of the ideas that the artist approached on a recurring basis during his life, and that highlights the survival and relevance of his thinking.
