A photograph of a drawing now in the Albertina, Vienna (inv. no.4882), clearly related to the figure of naked man hanging on the wall in the attemp of escaping from the burning city on the left of Raphael's fresco of The Fire in the Borgo, executed in the Stanza dell'Incendio in the Vatican in c.1514. The authorship of the drawing (sometimes attributed to Raphael and sometmes to his School) is subject of much debate. For further discussion, see Bibliographic References.
