Eastlake thanks Becker for information about some engravings; he thinks the two side pictures are by Perugino rather than Raphael, as attributed by Passavant, who dates the picture to 1503. Waagen dates the drawing at Oxford to1501, but if Raphael assisted in the picture Eastlake thinks it cannot pre-date 1503.
