Male Nude, Seen from the Rear (verso)

Black chalk on brown paper, 242 x 182 mm
Teylers Museum, Haarlem

The verso of the sheet shows a male nude, seen from the rear. This drawing is stylistically closely related to the drawing on the verso, they were probably created at the same time. Although the motif of the male nude striding toward the right was not used in the Last Judgment fresco, it could have been an early idea for the damned at the far left in the group of the Seven Deadly Sins.
