Study for a Caricature

Study for a Caricature is a drawing by Leonardo da Vinci which is housed in the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana, Milan.

It features an old servant woman who has cabbage leaf ears, is toothless and grimacing. Caravaggio used this drawing as inspiration for a character in his 1599 painting Judith and Holofernes.
