A photograph of a drawing now in the Sammlung der Kunstakademie, Museum Kunstpalast, Düsseldorf (inv. no.KA (KP) 14). The drawing corresponds with Raphael's figure of the woman carrying two water-jars painted in the lower right foreground of the fresco of The Fire in the Borgo, executed in the Stanza dell'Incendio in the Vatican in c.1514. A similar drawing (although in reverse) is now in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford (inv. no.WA1846.284). For a photograph of the Ashmolean sheet, see RCIN 852835.
