This painting is an oil sketch of the fresco which Palomino painted in 1696 in the Oratory of the Town Hall in Madrid. Palomino painted two other frescoes representing the same subject, both destroyed, one in the chapel of the San Juan de Dios hospital, and another in the El Paular Carthusian monastery near Segovia.
