A photograph of a drawing currently housed in the Royal Library at Windsor Castle (RCIN 990415). Passavant thought that the photographed drawing may be a copy of a study formerly in the collection of Professor Jansen at Copenhagen which he attributed to G.F. Penni and described as preparatory for a painting then in the possession of H. Hope, a photograph of which can be found at RCIN 851940.

A copy of this photograph (RCIN 851942) can be found in the Prince Consort's Raphael Collection, portfolio 19 (970578)
