da Vinci Drawing

Woman’s Head Almost in Profile, Leonardo da Vinci, 1480

The lightness and sensitivity of this metalpoint drawing breathes feminine grace into a simple portrait. Though she does not have much expression on her face, I can see this woman is gentle and kind, lovely both inside and out. Perhaps she is gazing into the eyes of her baby. She looks thoughtful, as if she might be treasuring things and pondering them in her heart.
