copy of "Saturn" Notebook
18 x 24.5 cm (0.6 cm spine). 40 sheets (80 pages).
Now considered one of the most spectacular works belonging to Goya's Black Paintings, it was once described as "repugnant without much art". It is impossible not to shudder at the sight of Saturn (1820-1823), devouring one of his children, as reproduced on the cover of this spine notebook. Against it, it reproduces another of Goya's black paintings, The Reading.
