A photograph of a drawing attributed to Raphael (c.1508-09) now in the Albertina, Vienna (inv. no.225). The drawing is thought to be a modello for the lower left side of the Disputa (The Disputation of the Holy Sacrament), painted by Raphael in the Stanza della Segnatura in the Vatican between 1508 and 1511.

Copies survive in the Musée du Louvre, Paris (inv. no.3976), Royal Library in Turin (see RCIN 852441) and Uffizi (see RCIN 852442). Ruland (1876) catalogued a very similar drawing as being then in the Biblioteca Ambrosiana in Milan; it is currently untraced and apparently hitherto not discussed in literature (see RCIN 852338).
