Da Vinci figurative sketches art delve into the fantasy of folk lore as Da Vinci muses upon the world with the help of his imagination. “Lady with a Unicorn” is a delicate sketch of a young woman sitting besides the mythical Unicorn. The Unicorn appears as the pet of the woman, as there is a collar tied around the Unicorn’s neck, with a leash attached and being held by the woman.
Done in quick fine strokes, “Self Portrait” is a portrait of Leonardo Da Vinci himself. The sketch was done in his later years, as he has a long white beard and long white hair. “Head of a Young Woman with Tousled Hair,” depicts a young woman with delicate features and flowing hair. There is a slight coy smile on her lips and her eyes are looking down and away.
