This extraordinary group of La Piedad, one of the main pieces of Medina's artistic heritage, is unanimously considered to be the original work of Juan de Juni, and it has always been assumed that it was the central relief of a currently lost altarpiece, commissioned around 1575 by the wealthy merchant and money changer Francisco de Dueñas to preside over the chapel of his unique recreational villa known as Casa Blanca, in the vicinity of Medina del Campo, an exceptional work by the Corral de Villalpando, artists with whom Juni collaborates on several occasions.
