A drawing of the head and shoulders of a youth, facing right. He has long hair and wears a turban. This drawing in red chalk shows how readily the artist mastered the challenges of the medium. He understood how to vary the pressure of the chalk on the paper, when to juxtapose parallel hatching with sinuous contours and when to leave passages of paper untouched.
