Parish church of San Andrés, Villamediana (Palencia) [based on their relation to paintings presumably from the same retable still in San Andrés]. Galerie Heinemann, Munich, probably by 1926 [this date is suggested by a paper label imprinted Galerie Heinemann, Munchen / 18734, and a customs label reading ZOLL / I-26]; sold to Joseph Winterbotham, Jr. (died 1954), Burlington, Vt., by 1936 [lent by him to the 1936 exhibition; an annotated list of loans gives Heinemann as the source for the picture; Silva Maroto 1990 stated that it was in the Winterbotham collection in 1933]; bequeathed to the Art Institute, 1954.
