A facsimile etching reproducing (in reverse and with some additions) a drawing currently housed in the Albertina, Vienna (inv. no.201). Formerly thought to be by Raphael, the drawing is now generally thought to be a copy after a study by the master. Signed, dated and numbered on plate: 'N.o.5'. A photograph of the Albertina drawing can be found at RCIN 851224.

The print shows the Christ Child looking at His mother, while being supported by her with both hands, who sits next to St Anne.
