Reproduction note

An etching made by Wenceslaus Hollar after Leonardo's drawing at Windsor (Clark 19002v). It is a detail of the figure that appears on the lower left of the sheet. Hollar had access to Leonardo's drawings from 1636 to 1641 when he was in the employ of Thomas Howard, Earl of Arundel, who at the time owned the Leonardo drawings now at Windsor. Hollar later published prints of them between 1645-1651
