A photograph of a drawing attributed to the school of Raphael currently in the Gabinetto Disegni e Stampe degli Uffizi, Florence (inv. no.497E v). The drawing has been formerly attributed to Raphael. The studies connect with those drawn on the recto of the same sheet. See RCIN 851247.

A copy of the head of the young woman alone (probably a study for the Virgin Mary) was once in the collection of Dr Wellesley, Oxford. A photograph of this drawing can be found at RCIN 851249.

The photograph shows the bust-length figure of a young woman, with her head turned slightly to the left (top centre) and the bust-length figure of a youth with long hair looking down to the left.
