The scene was entitled “La romería de San Isidro” in the inventory of the works owned by Goya’s son, drawn up at an undetermined date in the mid-19th century by the painter Antonio Brugada, who returned to Madrid in 1832 from exile in Bordeaux. It was first described in Charles Yriarte’s monograph on the artist as part of the decoration on the ground floor of the Quinta del Sordo, where it was shown opposite “El gran cabrón” or “Aquelarre”.
