About the Work

These three sheets inv. nos. 4229 Z to 4231 Z are part of a series of drawings executed in 1623. To this day, the extent of the series as well as its function have remained a mystery. Palma focussed chiefly on the figures, reducing the spatial setting to a minimum. On all three sheets, the bodies have been recorded with simple pen strokes which are frequently interrupted but confident nonetheless. The drawings are not likely to have been conceived either as studies for paintings or in preparation for an etching series. What remains is the impression that Palma intended to produce an independent cycle using the drawing medium.
