This altarpiece was painted for the Carmelite Monastery in Venice and it was held in the chapter-house there, where it was mentioned by Boschini, Zanetti, and Federici. The Carmelite monk, depicted on the right, is thought by several scholars to have commissioned the work and should be interpreted as St. Albert of Trapani.
