The panel painting entered the gallery in 1801, replacing the celebrated prototype in the Louvre, sold in that year together with a group of other works to Mr Durand of Paris. On that occasion an attempt was made to substitute the lost work with a painting, albeit of low quality, that recalled it in some way, at least in the subject.
