An outline-etching reproducing a composition wrongly attributed on plate to Raphael. The composition is thought to derive from a design by Giulio Romano, and is better known through a print by Léon Davent (RCIN 851428.a) which is part of a bigger composition (in four plates) depicting the Apostles looking at Christ and the Virgin in glory. As the lettering on the print makes clear, the subject was mistaken for a scene from the Pentecost. Published in C.P. Landon, Vie et Œuvre complète de Raphaël Sanzio, 1803, plate 422.
