A photograph of a drawing depicting a fortified city now in the Ashmolean Museum (inv. no. WA1846.29), where it is attributed to Fra Bartolomeo.

This drawing was previously in Sir Thomas Lawrence's collection and it was then attributed to Raphael. In the catalogue of the Italian drawings of the Ashmolean Museum, Parker (see Bibliographic References) writes that various scholars have debated the attribution of this drawing, as there are many stylistic differences between it and the other drawings by Fra Bartolomeo in the Ashmolean Museum (see for example RCIN 854517).
