This painting is said to have been the central panel of an altarpiece from the church of S. Pietro at Maggianico, near Lecco. The panel of 'Saint Andrew' is thought to be from the same altarpiece. Other compartments show Saints Peter, Paul, Ambrose, Bernard and Anthony Abbot, together with a predella of Christ and the apostles.
