Though highly finished and squared for transfer, the drawing is not related to any of Giulio's extant works, nor can it be identified with any commission for a lost painting or fresco. St. Jerome,who kneels at left, is identified by his attributes, the cardinal's hat and lion; he is accompanied by a figure who has traditionally been accepted as St. Augustine, another of the four Latin Fathers of the Church. They appear to be witnessing a sacred event at the center of an altarpiece. The drawing is thought to have been made in Rome before Giulio's departure for Mantua in 1524.
