A photograph of a drawing now in the British Museum, London (inv. no.Pp,1.62). The drawing is a copy from the youthful King standing at left in the Adoration of the Magi, a painting now in the Galleria Palatina, Palazzo Pitti, Florence (inv. no.341) thought to derive from a lost fresco by Perugino formerly in the cloister of San Giusto alle Mure in Florence, a preparatory study for which is now in the British Museum, London (inv. no.1853,1008.1).
