Jaffé suggests that the top recto drawing is after Carracci's painting now at the Staatliche Gemäldegalerie, Dresden, inv.no.302. Brown, however, argues that the sketch is after Carracci's painting then at the Palazzo Farnese, Rome; now at the Pinacoteca Nazionale, Bologna, inv.no.6340. The full-length sketch of Christ is after Titian's painting then in Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan; now at the Musée du Louvre, Paris, inv.no.748.
Top verso sketch is after a now lost painting by Titian; H.E. Wethey, 'The Paintings of Titian, I, The Religious Paintings', London, 1969, no.33.
