A print after a design by Raphael for the fresco God appears to Isaac painted by the workshop of Raphael (c.1517-19) in the vault of the fifth bay of the Raphael Loggia in the Vatican. Trimmed to image.

Höper (2001) cites the drawing now in the Staatsgalerie, Stuttgart (see RCIN 853440 for a photograph), as that used by Dente for his engraving.
