This 9" x 10" ink painting on paper is a Goya study titled "Murió la verdad", or "The truth has died", from the Disasters of War series.  The image depicts the burial of a beautiful young woman, followed by her exhumation or resurrection in the corresponding image (Si resucitará?". The woman's body is radiant with light as she lies in her grave and a looming priest administers the last rites.  The lines were created with an ink nib pen and are contrasted by large washes created with a brush.
