Compared to works from other major European schools, Spanish drawings have long been considered uncharted territory. It was traditionally assumed that Spanish artists rarely drew, but recent research has demonstrated that drawing was, in fact, central to artistic practice in Spain.

The recent exhibition at the Morgan Library & Museum explores the central role of drawing in Spanish art. Featuring over 20 works spanning the 16th through the 19th century, it includes drawings by artists such as Ribera, Murillo, and Goya.
