A photograph of a drawing by Raphael (c.1507-08) currently in the Musée Bonnat, Bayonne (inv. no.1713). Not included in Ruland's Raphael Collection catalogue (1876). An undated annotation in the master copy of Ruland's Raphael Collection catalogue kept in the Royal Library at Windsor Castle records the drawing as being in the collection of Com. C. Guasti, Florence.

The photograph shows the full-length seated Virgin suckling the Christ Child, whom she holds on her knees; a study of the Child alone and a study of the head of the Virgin at upper left.
