11 Dec-27 Feb 2011. On loan from the Biblioteca Ambrosiana in Milan. Although there is doubt about the attribution of this work to Leonardo it is now generally accepted that the face and the neck are by Da Vinci because of the skilful modelling and the expressive eyes. The work is on a walnut panel and although the identity of the sitter remains uncertain, several individuals have been suggested, including Franchino Gafurio, a friend of Leonardo
