This drawing and a second one (1987.307) were associated by Marco Chiarini and Lawrence Turčić with frescoed pendentives by Antonio Franchi in the second chapel on the left in the church of San Frediano at Cestello, near Florence. Franchi's decorations in this chapel, which is dedicated to St. John the Baptist, are signed and dated 1706. The putto and angel in these drawings appear in the pendentives above the altar. The Metropolitan Museum possesses a drawing by Antonio Puglieschi (1660-1732) for the decoration of another chapel of San Frediano in Cestello (Exaltation of the Holy Cross, 1985.101).
