About the Author:

Juliet Wilson-Bareau is an acknowledged authority on both Goya and Manet. She co-authored with Pierre Gassier Goya's catalogue raisonné and has curated major Goya exhibitions in Spain, England and North America. Tom Lubbock is an art critic and graphic artist. He has written and illustrated for numerous publications. He is currently the art critic and Saturday cartoonist for the Independent.

From Library Journal:

Goya's highly imaginative drawings receive the scholarly spotlight in this impressive catalog of the first exhibition devoted exclusively to drawings from Goya's eight private sketchbooks, which were dispersed after his death in 1828. More than 115 drawings from 35 collections are shown for the first time as full-page, actual-size color reproductions except for drawings from the largest album. The book includes introductory texts on Goya's art and draftsmanship, commentaries, and texts on each album. Artist and art critic Tom Lubbock contributes a meditative study on examples of human vulnerability and resolve in Goya's imagery. A monument to Goya's astonishing imagination and emotional force, the drawings show poses, motifs, and emotions that reach full expression in his paintings and prints. In addition to curating other important Goya exhibitions, art historian Wilson-Bareau coauthored the complete catalogue raisonn? in 1971. Highly recommended.
