Description
This portrait is drawn in red chalk on paper. It shows the head of an old man in a three-quarter view, facing the viewer's right.

The subject is distinguished by his long hair and beard with long waves that flow over his shoulders and chest. The length of the hair and beard is rare in Renaissance portraits and suggests, as it does today, a person of wisdom. The face has an aquiline nose and is somewhat marked by deep wrinkles on the forehead and bags under the eyes.

The eyes look forward, veiled by long eyebrows, with an expression of solemnity and disillusion. If this is indeed a self-portrait of Leonardo da Vinci, his attitude can be explained by the fact that at that time his career was coming to an end and he was no longer in fashion.

The drawing was drawn in fine lines, shaded by hatching and executed with the left hand, as was Leonardo's habit. The document contains brownish marks caused by the accumulation of iron salts due to humidity.
About L. DA VINCI
Leonardo da Vinci was born on 15 April 1452. He was the son of a notary and a peasant woman who never married.

In 1466, he began working in the workshop of a sculptor named Andrea del Verrocchio. It was here that he began to paint, sculpt and draw.
Leonardo da Vinci became a painter, sculptor, engineer, inventor, musician, writer and architect, and was considered a great genius. He was always very interested in anatomical studies of the human body and could draw human organs in great detail.

He was accepted into the painters' guild in Florence in 1472 and opened his own painting and sculpture studio. His fame began to grow and he was commissioned to produce many different and very important works.

Throughout his life, he was in the service of several dukes who commissioned sculptures and paintings from him, but what really interested him was inventing new vehicles, weapons and objects.

All the works of Leonardo da Vinci are known, but the most famous are: the painting of "The Last Supper", which he painted on a fresco in the monastery of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan; "La Gioconda", better known as "La Monna Lisa"; and "Vitruvian Man", a famous drawing of a man with four arms and four legs, in which he attempted to study the human body.
He also made many sculptures, but none of them have survived to the present day.

Although he was always creating and building new works, the struggles that took place during his life, as well as the struggles and rebellions that took place after his death, are responsible for the fact that many of his creations were destroyed, burnt or lost, including his remains that were thrown away in an unknown place after a war.
He died on 2 May 1519 in France.
