It is assumed that the painting belonged to a triptych as the right wing. It has been established with near certainty that the The Virgin Showing the Man of Sorrows in Melbourne is the centrala panel of this triptych, and that the recently discovered Angel with an olive branch in the Louvre is a fragment of the left wing.
