A photograph of a drawing in the Royal Library at Windsor Castle (RCIN 904286) which is a copy after the fresco 'God appears to Isaac' painted by the workshop of Raphael (c.1517-19) in the vault of the fifth bay of the Raphael Loggia in the Vatican. Ruland (1876) stated that the drawing was probably by Carlo Maratta; it is listed in an early nineteenth century inventory of drawings in the Royal Collection as being in the fourth of six volumes of drawings attributed to Maratta.

A copy of this photograph (RCIN 853442) can be found in the Prince Consort's Raphael Collection, portfolio 35 (970595)
