This powerful drawing depicts the profile of a young man lying naked, his shoulders covered by a large sash. This sensual red chalk belongs most probably to the Italian school of the first half of the 17th century (Lombardy ?).
A young man is depicted nude, sitting naked on a mound, leaning on his right elbow and facing slightly to the right (his left hand resting on his right knee). This nudity reveals the prominent musculature of the young man’s left thigh, highlighted by the representation of his intergluteal fold, while his shoulders are curiously draped with a sash. He is looking away with an imperious attitude.
At this stage, we have not been able to convincingly link this study to other works that would allow us to identify the artist. The great sensuality of this sanguine could lead us towards the Lombard school of the 17th century. This drawing was formerly attributed to Giulio Cesare Procaccini (1574 - 1625), but this attribution is not supported by the artist's specialist Odette d'Albo.
