A photograph of a drawing now in the Biblioteca Reale, Turin (inv. no.DC. 15751).

The drawing bears close resemblance to a sheet currently in the Albertina, Vienna (inv. no.225), of which it seems to be a copy. The Albertina drawing is generally regarded as the modello (by Raphael?) for the lower left side of the Disputa (The Disputation of the Holy Sacrament) painted in the Stanza della Segnatura in the Vatican between 1508 and 1511. Other copies survive in the Louvre (inv. no.3976) and in the Uffizi (see RCIN 852442).
