Caption: This drawing of a male head by Leonardo da Vinci was for his proposed book on painting "Il Libro di Pittura". The title in the text (in mirror writing) reads: "The proof and reason why among illuminated parts certain portions are in higher light than others". This is a study of the relationship of light and shade on a face and, in the smaller drawing, within a room
