This composition is related to an altarpiece in the Church of Santa Maria Novella, Florence, executed by Naldini in 1572. It may be a creative variant of it, made for a private patron, rather than simply a copy.

Naldini first trained with Pontormo, but was later influenced by the art of painters such as Andrea del Sarto and Giorgio Vasari.
