A photograph of a drawing currently in the Szépmüvészeti Múzeum, Budapest (inv. no.F(1898)137). The drawing is a copy of a compositional study by Raphael now in the British Museum, London (1900,0824.108), preparatory for the lower left-hand group in the Disputa (The Disputation of the Holy Sacrament) painted in the Stanza della Segnatura in the Vatican between 1508 and 1511. Another copy survives in the Louvre (inv. no.3974).

J.A. Gere suggested that the photographed drawing may be the work of Giovanni Battista Franco, called Il Semolei (signed undated note on mount).
