Another of Leonardo's drawings, from about 1510. According to the information on the display:
"Leonardo began drawing two standard male types early in his career. An adolescent with refined features and an older man with hooked nose, prominent chin and protruding brow recur endlessly in his drawings. In the last decade of his life he produced a number of independent drawings of such heads usually in profile. These were exercises in form and draughtsmanship for his own satisfaction. The wreath of ivy leaves and a lion skin across the shoulder identify him as a wild man."
