A lithographic facsimile of a drawing by Raphael (c.1508-09) currently in the British Museum, London (inv. no.Ff.1-35). Lettered with production details and provenance of the work along the lower margin. Published in Passavant's Atlas, pl.XII.

The centre group and the study of a right foot are connected with the two figures standing in the right foreground of the Disputa (The Disputation of the Holy Sacrament), painted by Raphael in the Stanza della Segnatura in the Vatican between 1508 and 1511. On the sheets are also other studies probably related to the fresco and the draft of a sonnet.
