side by side images of Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man and a closely cropped painting beleived to be of Leonardo Da Vinci.

Vitruvian Man, top left, was drawn by Leonardo da Vinci in 1490 to illustrate the proportions of the human body. At right, the portrait, believed to be of a middle-aged Leonardo, was discovered in 2008 in a cupboard of a private house in Italy. It’s attributed to the artist by some historians.
