Portrait of a Man with a Falcon

Silverpoint on prepared paper, 189 x 143 mm
Städelsches Kunstinstitut, Frankfurt

Although this is a preparatory drawing, the artist added many secondary details, devoting as much attention to the room as to the man. The shelves are filled with books, writing materials and a pitcher. The beams of the ceiling and the wooden panelling of the back wall are sketched in.
