The drawing is a copy of a (now fragmentary) study by Raphael (c.1510) housed in the Albertina, Vienna (inv. no.219v), preparatory for the figure of the muse seen from the rear, standing on the extreme right of the group around Apollo in Raphael's fresco of Parnassus, painted in c.1510-11 in the Stanza della Segnatura, Vatican.
