The top left drawing on the recto is after Titian's painting now at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, inv.no.1952.2.11. The sketch at the centre of the recto is after Moroni's Schoolmaster, previously attributed to Titian; now at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, inv.no.1942.9.45. Jaffé refers to Oskar Fischel and Ludwig Burchard, who suggested that Van Dyck made a painted copy after Moroni which was with A. S. Drey in Munich c.1930.
The verso sketch is after Titian's painting which Van Dyck would have recorded in the Palazzo Farnese in Rome; now at the Museo Nazionale, Naples.
