This print reproduces Raphael's 1512-14 oil painting in the Museo del Prado, Madrid. That work took its name from the fish held by the kneeling Tobias, accompanied by the archangel Raphael. St. Jerome appears on the other side of the composition.

The inscription at the lower left of the print identifies the original artist ("Rafaele Pinxit," or "Raphael painted this"); the draftsman is credited in the center ("G. B. Cipriani delin[eavit]," or "G. B. Cipriani drew this") and the engraver at lower right ("F. Bartolozzi sculp[sit]," or "F. Bartolozzi engraved this"). A stamp over Bartolozzi's name [B. R. H.] indicates that this print formerly belonged to the English painter Benjamin Richard Haydon (1786-1846).
