A photograph of a drawing formerly in the collection of the Duke d'Aumale, now in the Musée Condé, Chantilly (inv. no.62-54). The photographed drawing is a copy of a pen and ink sketch attributed to an artist from the circle of Perugino, part of the Libretto Veneziano, now in the Gallerie dell'Accademia, Venice (f. 56r). The figure of the winged angel standing on the left shows similarities with one of the two angels depicted in the so-called Holy Family of Francis I, a painting attributed to Raphael and his workshop (1518) now in the Musée du Louvre, Paris (inv. no.604). A photograph of the drawing in the Gallerie dell'Accademia can be found at RCIN 851044.
