tempera on panel
23.3 x 15.7 cm (9-1/8 x 6-1/8 in)
Enrico Marinucci, Rome, 1934;  probably sold 1936/1937 to (Count Alessandro Contini Bonacossi [1878-1955], Rome-Florence);  sold to Samuel H. Kress [1863-1955] on 1 September 1939; gift to the Birmingham Museum of Art in 1961, no. 1961.113.  Described and illustrated by Wilhelm Suida, "Italian primitives in the Marinucci collection in Rome," Apollo 20, September 1934, p. 120.  This is probably the small Sienese crucifixion mentioned in a letter dated 1 October 1936 from an Enrico Cappiello, offering pictures on behalf of Marinucci to the director of the William Rockhill Nelson Gallery (Philbrook Museum of Art, Tulsa, curatorial file for Tanzio da Varallo, 1944.2). It is likely that those paintings came from the collecion of Marinucci's uncle, Cardinal Pietro Gasparri [1852-1934].
