A collection of Master drawings held at Christ Church.

Andrea del Verrocchio:

Head of a Young Woman

This drawing is one of the most beautiful drawings to survive from fifteenth-century Florence. It may be a study for the head of the Virgin in a now lost painting similar to Verrocchio's Virgin and Child, now in Berlin.


Albrecht Dürer:

A Knight and his Lady (c.1508)

This is the finest of three versions of this subject and probably dates from Dürer's mature period after returning to Nuremberg from his second visit to Italy in 1507.


Leonardo da Vinci:

A Grotesque Head (c.1503-07)

Leonardo was fascinated by human physiognomy and began making studies of grotesque heads with various expressions during his first stay in Milan, between 1482 and 1499.
