A print after a drawing in the Uffizi, Florence (inv.no.1222 E), which is now attributed to the school of Raphael and thought to be the modello for the fresco Moses and the burning bush painted by the workshop of Raphael (c.1517-19) in the vault of the eighth bay of the Raphael Loggia in the Vatican. Lettered with attribution of the drawing to Raphael and the name of the printmaker. On watermarked paper. Trimmed within platemark on two sides. See RCIN 853521 for a photograph of the drawing reproduced in this print.

This print was perhaps made for publication in Disegni originali d’eccellenti pittori esistenti nella R. Galleria di Firenze (Florence, c. 1766), a volume of reproductions of drawings in the Uffizi collection on which Mulinari collaborated with his master Andrea Scacciati.
