This collection of drawings is particularly important due to the quantity of heretofore unpublished material, including the Spencer Collection of the New York Public Library containing the complete series of 104 caricatures copied in the sixteenth century directly from Leonardo's original drawings on physiognomic research, for the most part no longer extant.

Eight figure studies are conserved in the Metropolitan Museum in New York, including the first drawing for the Virgin of the Rocks and the preparatory drawing for the Virgin’s head in the Louvre's Virgin and Child with St Anne.

Recently acquired are the two famous drapery studies and the sheet of figure studies now at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles.

Drawings by Leonardo's pupils and followers are gathered, for a total of about 200 drawings.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
