studies of cats
Pen and brown ink with charcoal on
thick paper, 13,8 x 9 cm.
New York, Mia Wiener Collection.
Copies of the later studies of cats by Leonardo found in Windsor, probably
part of a treatise on the movement of animals.
The firm and almost rough line seems to be due to
tracing. Pedretti attributes it to Melzi. The date is
uncertain, placed in the mid- 1500.
