A print after a drawing formerly in the Wicar Museum, Lille and now in the Musée des Beaux-Arts, Lille (inv. no.Pl 444). Published in Choix de dessins de Raphael qui font partie de la collection Wicar à Lille, Paris 1858, plate XI. A photograph of the drawing can be found at RCIN 851357.

The drawing is a preparatory study by Raphael (c.1502-03) for the figures of the angels playing musical instruments in the Coronation of the Virgin, the main panel of the so-called Oddi Altarpiece (or Pala Oddi), executed by the master in c.1502-03 and now in the Pinacoteca Vaticana, Vatican City (inv. no.334).
