El Roto. One Cannot Watch

This collection of drawings by Andrés Rábago (Madrid, 1947), El Roto, has been gathered together specifically to be shown at the Prado, where it coincides with the exhibition of Goya's drawings, 'Only my strength of will remains', which inspired the former with its scathing analysis about human stupidity.
Both Goya's and El Roto's work are designed to make us think. They show us the dark and real side of existence. Goya drew and etched with the intention of including society in his criticisms of human behaviour, just as El Roto has through his daily vignettes, in which he combines the image with a brief but expressive text, consistent with essential brevity of his style.
