The painting together with the other one entitled "The Virgin Annunciate" were parts of the Saint Laurence Altarpiece commissioned by cardinal Agnolo Acciaioli between 1404 and 1407. It’s destination was St. Mary’s chapel of the Florentine Certosa del Galluzzo. Probably the paintings were housed in the Schloss Reisewitz to 1940s.
