This painting was part of a predella illustrating the Passion of Christ. The other four scenes showed the Crucifixion in the centre (Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York), the Betrayal of Christ (private collection), the Way to Calvary (Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection, Madrid), and the Lamentation (Nationalmuseum, Stockholm). The present scene was the last in the series of five predella panels.
