After predella panel, whereabouts unknown, formerly in the Dominican church of S. Spirito in Siena
1949, S. Caligaris, Florence; May 4, 1949, sold by Caligaris to Herbert N. Bier, London, and R. A. Newton; April 9, 1950, sold by Herbert Bier to Vitale Bloch (b. 1900 - d. 1975), London and New York [see note 1]; 1950, sold by Bloch to the MFA for $2400 [see note 2]. (Accession Date: May 11, 1950) NOTES:  The provenance is taken from information in the files of Herbert Bier. However, in a letter from Vitale Bloch to W. G. Constable of the MFA (May 16, 1950), Bloch writes that "I bought the two little paintings [MFA nos. 50.861 and 50.862] in Florence from Mr. B[ernard] Berenson's restorer." In a subsequent letter to Mrs. Neil Rudenstine of the MFA (December 14, 1962), Bloch specifies that the restorer was Mr. [Giannino] Marchig (b. 1897 - d. 1983).  MFA accession numbers 50.861-50.862 were purchased together for $2400.
