A lithographic facsimile of a pen and ink drawing attributed to Berto di Giovanni now in the Albertina, Vienna (inv. no.74). As lettered on the print, the drawing has been formerly ascribed to Perugino and according to Ruland (1876) it was then in the collection of the Archduke Albert von Sachsen-Teschen, Vienna. Lettered with production details.

The composition shows similarities with the painting of the Madonna and Child with Saints Jerome and Francis by Raphael (c.1501-02; Gemäldegalerie, Berlin, inv. no.145). See RCIN 850640 for a photograph of the Berlin painting.
