A print reproducing (in reverse) the head and shoulders of the white-robed figure, standing at the bottom of the stairs on the left of Raphael's School of Athens, painted in c.1509-10 in the Stanza della Segnatura in the Vatican. Lettered with production details. The figure - which is identified as Federico da Urbino on the print - has been often interpreted as Hypatia of Alexandria, depicted in the likeness of Francesco Maria della Rovere (1490-1538).
