A photograph of a painting formerly owned by Lord Methuen and currently at Corsham Court, Wiltshire. The photographed picture is an early copy of the so-called Madonna dell’Impannata, a painting generally attributed to Raphael's workshop after a design by the master (c.1513-16) now in the Galleria Palatina, Palazzo Pitti, Florence (inv. no.94). A photograph of the Madonna dell’Impannata can be found at RCIN 851074.

Showing the standing Virgin receiving the Christ Child from St Elizabeth (?) who is seating alongside a female saint on the left, with the young John the Baptist pointing at the Child on the right; in an interior, with a window in the right background.
