A photograph of a drawing currently in the Musée Bonnat, Bayonne, generally thought to be a copy after a study by Raphael. In his Raphael Collection catalogue (1876), Ruland attributed the drawing to Raphael and listed it as in the collection of the late M. Galichon, Paris.

The photograph shows the enthroned Virgin and Child flanked by numerous figures on either side, shown in a variety of attitudes; a child (probably an angel) at the feet of the throne.
