A photograph of a painting catalogued by Ruland (1876) as being then in the Rinuccini Collection, Florence. The painting - which is a copy of Raphael's so-called Canigiani Holy Family now in the Alte Pinakothek, Munich (inv. no.WA 476) - appeared on the market in 1979 (Sotheby’s, 30 May 1979, lot 123). Current whereabouts unknown. Not in Ruland (1876).

See RCIN 850756 for a photograph of the Canigiani Holy Family.

Showing the Virgin supporting the Christ Child on her knees, who leans forward to the Infant Baptist resting on St Elizabeth’s lap, with St Joseph standing behind them and supporting himself with a stick; in a landscape with eight angels in the upper part.
