During the quincentenerary of Leonardo's death, the museum at Chantilly explores one of its most enigmatic collection items, a cartoon of 'the Nude Mona Lisa' acquired in 1862.  The exhibition features one drawing on loan from the Royal Collection, The Bust of a Young Man in black chalk, which is believed to be the only extant preparatory drawing for the work at Chantilly.
