Study of legs, feet, and a young man leaning1574
This study is a good example of the kind of sketches that artists kept in their ‘artistic archive’. They could draw from it at will when composing a painting or a sculpture. Bloemaert used this study for his painting The Adoration of the Shepherds (Niedersächsisches Landesmuseum, Hannover).
