Zeri was the first to link the present picture with a series of panels belonging to a polyptych formerly in the Fesch Collection and today dispersed, loc. cit., further panels of which are in the Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, Conn. (Saint Peter Apostle), the Kress Collection, Art Museum, El Paso, Texas (Salvator Mundi), the Castello Sforesco, Milan (Saint Bartholomew and Saint John the Evangelist), and in the E. Proehl Collection, Amsterdam (Saint Phillip Apostle; P. Zampetti, Carlo Crivelli, Florence, 1986, pp. 260-2, pls. 21-4). Zeri regards these panels as close in style and date to Crivelli's Polyptych of 1472, also today dispersed (F. Zeri, Cinque schede per Carlo Crivelli, Arte Antica e Moderna, 13-16, 1961, pp. 158-60; and Zampetti, op. cit., pp. 259-60, figs. 15-19).
On the reverse is the lower half of a chalk drawing of a nude, his legs parted, his right hand extended.
