[Young man caressing an old woman.]
Etching, sheet 155 x 130mm (6 x 5"). Trimmed to image.
In 1644 Wenceslaus Hollar made an etching of the same drawing by Leonardo, of a youth caressing an old woman who holds a coin and a bag of money. Hollar's print was one of a series of prints from Leonardo drawings then in the Arundel Collection and since dispersed (although the album is in the Royal Collection). This anonymous etching may have been copied from Hollar's print.
See Pennington 1604 for Hollar's print.
