An etching after a painting catalogued by Ruland (1876) as being then in the Bridgewater Gallery, London. The painting appears to be a replica the so-called Madonna of the Blue Diadem, a painting generally attributed to Raphael’s workshop (possibly G.F. Penni or Giulio Romano) housed in the Musée du Louvre, Paris (inv. no. 603; see RCIN 850887 for it).

Showing the Virgin lifting a veil over the sleeping Christ Child with the Infant Baptist kneeling down in adoration on the right; in a landscape.
