Similar compositions frequently appear in painted roundels (tondi) attributed to Lorenzo di Credi and his circle, including an example in the Metropolitan Museum (09.197), which differs in its inclusion of Saint John the Baptist. It is uncertain whether this drawing was a preparatory study for a painting or was derived from a finished work.
