This interesting double sided sheet may relate to Empoli's painting, La Conquista di Bona (1613-14) in the Church of Santo Stefano dei Cavalieri, in Pisa.1 There are a number of other preparatory studies that have been associated with this commission, some of which also depict figures dressed in cloaks with swords and also incorporate separate studies of hands holding swords.  The young man represented on the recto of this sheet is not dissimilar to a study of a young man in a cloak, in the Musée des Beaux-Arts, Lille (inv. no. PL 615).3  The Lille drawing is of a man standing in much the same position as our study, with his hand on his hip and the other raised.  It has been suggested that the Lille study could be a first idea for the figure of Ammiraglio Inghirami, to the far right of Empoli's painting, La Conquista di Bona, whose stance is very comparable to both the Lille study and the present drawing.

The application of chalk and the way in which the facial features have been drawn in the figure on the recto of the present sheet are characteristic of Empoli's drawings.  In particular the way the nose and mouth have been defined, the nose almost like a button and the mouth like a downturned crescent moon, can be seen in many of his drawings, in particular in the features of the Young boy with a Lute in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam (Inv. 1948:357).4
