A couple of drawings to talk about here. The first, in the Uffizi, is a drawing of a standing male nude. It has been variously attributed to Stefano da Verona or his circle. While we’re no closer to a firm attribution, there has been some convincing work, showing the subject to be JFK. The search for a fragment with Ms. Monroe is currently underway.
The other, a much later drawing, shows Thomas Bewick at work on his banged up MacBook Pro. His pet duck is playing possum.
