Man in coat and creature, by Urs Graf, 1518

Man in coat and creature. Date: 1518
This 1518 drawing, thought to be a self portrait, by the Swiss mercenary artist, Urs Graf. It looks like he was putting on his coat (perhaps a shaub) while beginning to walk briskly away from the figure on the right. He has put his right arm all the way into the sleeve and the other side of the large coat is hanging off his left shoulder. Now to get the coat the rest of the way on, he reaches across with his right hand and grasps the collar/lapel on the left side to pull the coat.
