(b. 1475, Caprese, d. 1564, Roma)

Male Nude (recto)

Pen and brown ink, 337 x 162 mm
Musée du Louvre, Paris

This drawing, which reflects both classical inspiration and the study of a living model, is connected with the marble David, for which Michelangelo received the commission in August 1501.

On the verso, various studies can be seen which can be connected to a wide variety of works by Michelangelo.
