Summary

Portrayed in near profile with downcast eyes, this study of the head of a young woman resembles the physiognomic type frequently employed for images of the Virgin found in paintings by Lorenzo di Credi and his school. The drawing was retouched by a later hand, obscuring its original appearance.
Attributed to Lorenzo di Credi (Lorenzo d'Andrea d'Oderigo) (Italian, Florence 1456/59–1536 Florence)
