Several versions have been preserved of this representation of St Francis with Brother Rufus. There is an early version in Bergamo, derived from a composition by Titian existing only in woodcut. Another version, likewise early, in the Zuloaga Museum at Zumaya, already shows wide divergences from Titian's composition.
