A lithographic facsimile of a drawing attributed to Raphael (c.1514) now in the Albertina, Vienna (inv. no.4881). Lettered with artists' names below image. Published in N. Förster, Lithographirte Copien von Original Handzeichnungen berühmter alter Meister der Italienischen schule aus der Sammlung seiner Kaiserlichen Hoheit des durchlauchtigsten Erzherzogs Carl von Oesterreich, 2 vols., Vienna (Mansfeld et Comp.), 1829-34, VII.

The drawing is a study for the so-called 'Aeneas/Anchises group' painted in the lower left foreground of Raphael's fresco of The Fire in the Borgo, executed in the Stanza dell'Incendio in the Vatican in c.1514. A photograph of the drawing can be found at RCIN 852837.

Between 1829 and 1834 the lithographic printers Mansfeld and Company, who were based in Vienna, published two volumes of lithographic copies after drawings then in the collection of Archduke Charles of Austria, Duke of Teschen; volume one contained drawings attributed to the Italian school, and volume two the German and Flemish school.
