A photograph of a drawing described by Ruland (1876) as being in the Uffizi, Florence, which depicts the figure of Moses from the fresco Moses presents the Tablets of the Law painted by the workshop of Raphael (c.1517-19) in the vault of the ninth bay of the Raphael Loggia in the Vatican. According to an inscription on the verso, the photograph was presented to the Royal Library by Professor Santarelli, who is perhaps the sculptor and collector Emilio Santarelli (1801-86).
