Study Sheet with Heads, Figures and Architectural Fragments1472
The female nudes at the top of this page of studies are drawn in various poses. One pose, with the weight resting on one leg (contrapposto), is worked out in more detail in the figure at centre. In addition, there are faces, architectural details and a kneeling, nude figure of St Sebastian. These studies reveal the curiosity and restless searching of Renaissance artist Piero di Cosimo.
