Goya's sketches were, generally speaking, the first step towards the completion of a specific project. There are notes, studies and preparatory sketches for a final work, pictorial or graphic. One of the artist's sketchbooks, the 'Italian sketchbook' clearly illustrates his way of working. Throughout his life he ordered his designs and sketches into groups.
