The sketch at top recto is after a painting in the Galleria Borghese, Rome (inv. 124), which Van Dyck considered to be by Titian, but is now believed to be by Il Padovanino. The sketches at bottom recto are after Titian's painting now in the Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence, inv.no.1437.
The sketch on the verso was related indirectly to Raphael's fresco in the Villa Farnesina, Rome by Michael Jaffé (The Devonshire Collection of Northern European Drawings: A Complete Catalogue, 2002, vol. 1, no. 1118). David Jaffé however established that Van Dyck drew from an engraving of an antique statue in the Farnese collection in 'New thoughts on Van Dyck's Italian sketchbook', Burlington Magazine 143 (2001), pp. 618, 620 and figs. 23 and 25.
