This drawing is an outline cartoon, squared and pricked for transfer. The identification of its author is highly problematic. The most convincing comparisons can be made with Florentine painters of the 1470s. The drawing was linked to Antonio del Pollaiuolo, Andrea del Verrocchio, and Domenico Ghirlandaio.
