Sir Sidney Colvin (1845-1927), who worked as "Keeper of Prints and Drawings" at the British Museum in London, attributed this drawing to Raphael in 1904. However, the manner in which the figures are spread out like a relief across the composition is far more reminiscent of the works of his pupil Giulio Romano, who in turn influenced the Ferrarese artist da Carpi.
