Juliet Wilson-Bareau is an acknowledged authority on both Goya and Manet. She co-authored with Pierre Gassier Goya's catalogue raisonne 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.

Book Description Hayward Gallery; Lund Humphries, 2001. Gebundene Leinenausgabe. Book Condition: Sehr gut. 192 Seiten, mit zahlreichen Abbildungen, Text: Englisch. Leinenband mit illustriertem Schutzumschlag in sehr gutem, sauberem Zustand. - Over 35 years, alongside his paintings and prints, Francisco Goya expressed his creative genius in eight albums of drawings. Split up after his death, their pages scattered across various collections, the albums remain little known. This book reunites over 100 of the drawings, almost all in colour at actual size, including both sides of double-sided sheets, and there are detailed commentaries on each album and each drawing. The album drawings reveal Goya's astonishing powers of invention and observation. They include flights of fantasy, nightmare and biting satire, and show the artist's imagination at work on a vast range of subjects - a pageant of carnival and Holy Week, the upheavals of war, images of childhood and old age, witches and charlatans - in a reflection, both violent and tender, of the world around him.
