Four years before his death, Goya emigrated to France. This drawing comes from this period. Although many years had passed since the Spanish War of Independence, the drawing is reminiscent of the harrowing scenes from the series ‘Los Desastres de la Guerra’. The desperate pose of the kneeling man closely resembles the dramatic gestures and expressions of many figures from this series finished almost a decade earlier.
