A rare pencil sketch by the Italian Renaissance genius Leonardo da Vinci is heading to auction this week - with a surprisingly low estimated price.
The small drawing, which measures just 4.5" by 6.5", depicts a figural nude study and is one of the very few da Vinci sketches to remain in private hands.
