A photograph of a drawing formerly in the collection of Prince Nikolaus Esterházy inVienna, and now in the Szépmüvészeti Múzeum in Budapest (inv. no.1779). The drawing has been considered either as a first preparatory sketch by Raphael for the upper half of the so-called Oddi Altarpiece (or Pala Oddi), or as a contemporary copy after it.

The 'Oddi Altarpiece' was painted by Raphael in 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.
