About the Work

The historian and city librarian Johann Friedrich Böhmer (1795 – 1863) was a member of the Städel administration from 1822 to 1834. He bequeathed to the museum works by his contemporaries, for instance Ferdinand Olivier and Johann Anton Ramboux, as well as two early Italian paintings. Only a year later, the Städel received a further twenty-three Sienese paintings – including this panel – which Böhmer had initially given to the Verein für Geschichte und Alterthumskunde. As that society had no use for them, it exchanged them for a pair of old pistols.
