A photograph of a fragment of a cartoon formerly in the collection of Henri Joseph François, Baron de Triqueti and now in the Musée Bonnat, Bayonne (inv. no.1705). The fragment - the authorship of which is a matter of ongoing debate - connects with the figure of St Joseph 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 Holy Family of Francis I can be found at RCIN 851028.
