A photograph of a drawing now in the Musée du Louvre, Paris (inv. no.3970) thought to be either a copy after a lost study by Raphael for the lower half of the so-called Oddi Altarpiece (or Pala Oddi), or a preparatory drawing by Raphael himself. The Oddi Altarpiece was executed by Raphael in c.1503-04 and is now in the Pinacoteca Vaticana, Vatican City (inv. no.334). Photographs of the altarpiece can be found at RCINs 851349, 851350, 851351.
