[Head of the Medusa.]
Pen lithograph, very scarce; sheet 275 x 385mm (10¾ x 15"). Slight foxing; crease on right.
Early lithograph from the famous painting of the medusa's head (Florence, Uffizi). This print was probably made around the same time that Percy Bysshe Shelley wrote his poem 'On the Medusa of Leonardo da Vinci in the Florentine Gallery'. Like Shelley, the maker of this print probably believed the painting to be by Leonardo. It is now considered to be by an anonymous artist of the Flemish school, c.1620-30.
