This panel was once the central image of a predella, or base, of an altarpiece. The altarpiece stood in the charterhouse (Carthusian monastery) of Vall de Crist in Altura, near Castellón, Spain, but today its main panel is in the cathedral of Segorbe in Castellón and the other eight predella paintings are in the Museo de Bellas Artes in Valencia.
