A photograph of a sheet now in the Gabinetto Disegni e Stampe degli Uffizi, Florence (inv. no.1134E), featuring two compositional studies for a group of the Virgin and Child with the Infant Baptist. Ruland (1876) suggested that the studies could be copies after Raphael’s sketches drawn on the verso of a sheet now in the Albertina, Vienna (inv. no.IV,207 r). For a photograph of the Albertina sheet, see RCIN 850711.
