About Couple with Parasol on the Paseo

The artwork, “Couple with Parasol on the Paseo,” is a creation by the esteemed artist Francisco Goya, dating back to the period of 1796 – 1797. Crafted with wash, ink, and paper, this piece embodies the Romanticism art movement and fits within the genre painting category. The piece measures 22 x 13.4 cm and is currently held at the Kunsthalle Hamburg in Hamburg, Germany.

Upon examining the artwork, one observes a moment captured with delicate subtlety and intimate detail. Two figures, presumably a couple, stand closely together under a parasol. The manner in which they hold each other suggests a sense of companionship or affection. The environment around them appears somewhat indistinct, allowing the viewers to focus on the interaction between the figures. The artwork uses monochrome tones with shading that highlight the forms and the lightness of the parasol. The fluidity of the lines and the contrast between the light and dark areas evoke a sense of casual elegance that is often characteristic of Goya’s sketches and informal studies.
