The panel was described in 1560 by
historian Pietro Lamo as in the palazzo
in Bologna of Count Giorgio Manzuoli;
according to Vasari, Parmigianino
would have painted it for this
patron. Yet a document dated 1533
states that the artist was paid fifty
gold scudos by a Bolognese patrician,
Bonifacio Gozzadini, for a work that
has been identified with ours. In 1605
it was exhibited in the Tribuna, where
it remained until 1848, but no records
have survived of the year this painting
first entered the Medici collections.
