All skewed up. Leo self portrait?
I've never seen this drawing by Leo before. It was on display @ the Uffizi and is thought to be a self portrait. It definitely looks like one of his sketches but I don't get a feeling that he would have drawn himself this way. He almost looks a little mean in it! Although the eyebrows and nose are reminiscent of his self portrait sketch.
Anamorphosis is a drawing/ painting that was designed to only be seen properly and clearly from a particular angle or perspective. Leonardo was actually the first person to ever do this!
"Leonardo's Eye (Leonardo da Vinci, c. 1485) is the earliest known definitive example of perspective anamorphosis."
