A bearded man in profile, confronted by a grotesque profile


RCIN 912555

Many early copies after Leonardo, both drawn and printed, focus on his grotesques, and thus the seventeenth century had a skewed vision of Leonardo as an artist. In this sheet the bearded man in profile is contrasted with a small sketch of a caricatured figure – a playful contrast of physical types that Leonardo so enjoyed.
