A drawing by Bernard Picart which, according to the inscription at bottom right, is supposedly after a drawing by Raphael. Picart likely intended to reproduce his drawing as a print.

This drawing is not catalogued by Ruland (1876) and it is listed as an addition in the master copy of the catalogue. Nevertheless, it is pasted on the folio sheet and the organisation of the Raphael Collection is believed to have been largely completed by 1876.
