Anonymous (Workshop of: Michelangelo (Michelangelo Buonarroti))

Nude warrior, seen from the rear

XVI century. Pencil, Grey-brown ink on yellow paper.
Not on display

This drawing seems to reflect the sort of diagrammatic pen drawing of human anatomy that Michelangelo sometimes made at the beginning of his career, while the general conception of the figure recalls some of those found in the artist´s famous Battle of Cascina composition.
