A photograph of a drawing now in the Musée Condé, Chantilly (inv. no.51(43)). The drawing is generally thought to be a copy after a lost drawing by Raphael, related to his so-called Canigiani Holy Family (c.1506-07; see RCIN 850756 for a photograph of it). Ruland (1876) catalogued the drawing as by Raphael, and listed it as being then in the collection of the Duke of Aumale.

Showing the Virgin supporting the Christ Child on her knees, who leans forward to the Infant Baptist resting on St Elizabeth’s lap; a study for the figure of St Joseph at upper left.
