Fuseli was known for his delicate pencil drawings. Most of his drawings are self-portraits and anatomical studies. He believed 'You ought to see distinctly the true image of what you are trying to draw'. This is a working drawing, using simple pen line to capture form. On the front and back of the paper are small unfinished chalk and pencil figure sketches.
