About I am Still Learning

The artwork titled “I am Still Learning,” created by the illustrious artist Francisco Goya between approximately 1824 and 1828, is an allegorical piece rendered with chalk on paper. This work falls under the Romanticism movement and presents a compact yet profound format with dimensions measuring 19.5 by 15 centimeters. The allegorical painting is currently housed in the Museo del Prado in Madrid, Spain.

In the artwork, one observes the figure of an elderly man, depicted with a robust beard and an intense, reflective gaze. He stands hunched over, leaning on two walking sticks, suggesting the frailty and challenges associated with advanced age. The surrounding strokes appear dark and somewhat tumultuous, imbuing the piece with a sense of struggle or introspection. Above him, inscribed clearly, are the words “Aun aprendo,” which translate to “I am still learning,” giving the piece a philosophical and eternal resonance about the nature of human experience and the pursuit of knowledge. The rough and immediate quality of the chalk medium adds to the sense of urgency and sincerity in the artwork’s message.
