As with his earlier Sforza monument, Leonardo’s designs for the Trivulzio monument evolved from a horse rearing over a fallen foe to a more stately walking pose. A detailed costing survives for the final design – which must have been very close to the present drawing – but there is no evidence that Leonardo carried out any physical work on the monument.
