Comment
The scene appears in the vault of the Stanza d'Eliodoro by Raphael. The Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, preserves a copy after a lost Raphael sketch, drawn in preparation for the fresco (inv. no. P II 462), but there is no direct connection between this drawing and Marcantonio Raimondi's original engraving. According to Shoemaker, Marcantonio increased the michelangelesque character of Raphael's composition, emphasized volume and plasticity, and changed the triangle format to rectangular. Marcantonio must have based his work upon a fairly complete model.
