This volume comprises seven pages with twelve original drawings in pencil by one of the most important Spanish painters of the Romantic movement. They are mostly anatomical sketches of predominantly male subjects, although there is also a half-length portrait of a woman, two male nudes and two standing figures: a barefoot man and a woman wearing shoes. These drawings entered the collection of the National Library as part of the personal papers of Francisco Asenjo Barbieri.
