Notes

This study, most surely drawn from life, was previously unknown. We are grateful to Pierluigi Leone de Castris for confirming, from a photograph, the attribution to Polidoro and suggesting that it dates from his Roman period, most probably circa 1524-1526. We have not been able to connect this naturalistic study with any known finished work by the artist.
