at least 3 portraits or commissions! His long suffering servant,
Codpiece, struggles unselfishly to support and encourage his Master
through this time of trouble and loss of inspiration. Out of the
blue amidst the turmoil of depression, arrives a beautiful and mysterious
model. Could this be the solution to Leonardo's tribulations? Of
