A portrait of a woman in profile


RCIN 912505

The six hundred drawings by Leonardo in the Royal Collection cover all aspects of his work, both artistic and scientific. This portrait of a young woman was clearly drawn from the life. There is a wide range of handling of the metalpoint, from the sweeping outlines of the bust and flowing layers of loose hair to the restrained modelling of the face.

    The income from your ticket contributes directly to The Royal Collection Trust, a registered charity. The aims of The Royal Collection Trust are the care and conservation of the Royal Collection, and the promotion of access and enjoyment through exhibitions, publications, loans and educational activities.
