This triptych was sold as a work of Raphael to Prince Alexander Mikhailovich Galitzin, Russian ambassador to Rome. In 1931 it was one of the masterpieces sold in a semi-secret deal by Stalin, purchased by the American entrepreneur Andrew W. Mellon, whose collection was the original nucleus, since 1937, of the nascent American museum.
