    Beautiful!

  2. Thanks for reminding me with this lovely drawing 🙂

  3. My name isn’t Ann, Anne or Anna, but i do love the sketch. Her expression is perfect.

    • So true. The composition seems shaped by convex archs almost paralels, and as you say has a perfect expression, with her half smile, this detail evoque his other work, the Monalisa, also called Gioconda. Each artist also has his tics. See you soon (I love your hat).

  4. I love this drawing, the serenity and gentleness. What a genius Da Vinci was! Thank you for posting it, Johanna
