Although Ponz (Viaje de España, 1776) does not mention this painting, it certainly occupied the altar on the Gospel side of the church of Las Vallecas, where it was paired with Bayeu´s Stigmata of Saint Francis (I350), which occupied the Epistle side. The two works have identical dimensions and shape ("semicircular arch with two extended heels") (Álvarez Lopera, 2009).
