A photograph of a drawing now in the Teylers Museum, Haarlem (inv. no.A 65). The drawing is a preparatory study for the herm to the right of King Astolph, painted on the dado of the Stanza dell'Incendio in the Vatican. The authorship of the drawing (sometimes attributed to Raphael and sometimes to Giulio Romano) is subject of much debate. For further discussion, see Bibliographic References.
