Comte de Bermudez, Toulouse, France. Possibly Enrico Marinucci, Rome. [1] (Count Alessandro Contini Bonacossi [1878-1955] Rome-Florence); sold to the Samuel H. Kress Foundation on 17 July 1950; gift to the University of Kansas Museum of Art, now Spencer Museum of Art, University of Kansas, in 1960, no. 60.43. [1] Marinucci is included in the records of the Getty Provenance Index as having bought the painting from Bermudez, but this is not included in Fern Rusk Shapley, Paintings from the Samuel H. Kress Collection, Italian Schools, XIII-XV Century, London, 1966, p. 56. The painting is not included in Wilhelm Suida, "Italian Primitives in the Marinucci Collection in Rome," Apollo XX (1934), p. 122, nor does it appear to be included in a letter dated 1 October 1936 from an Enrico Cappiello, offering pictures on behalf of Marinucci to the director of the Wiliam Rockhill Nelson Gallery (Philbrook Museum of Art, Tulsa, Curatorial file for Tanzio da Varallo, 1944.2, copy National Gallery of Art, Department of Curatorial Records). It is likely that those paintings came from the collection of Marinucci's uncle, Cardinal Pietro Gasparri [1852-1934].
