A print after a drawing attributed on plate to Raphael, formerly in the Wicar Museum, Lille and now in the Musée des Beaux-Arts, Lille (inv. no.Pl. 441). Published in Choix de dessins de Raphael qui font partie de la collection Wicar à Lille, Paris 1858, plate IX. A photograph of the drawing at RCIN 851354.

The drawing - the attribution of which is still disputed - is related to the central group of the Coronation of the Virgin, the main panel of the so-called Oddi Altarpiece (or Pala Oddi) executed by Raphael in c.1502-03 and now in the Pinacoteca Vaticana, Vatican City (inv. no.334).
