Burton B. Fredericksen and Federico Zeri. Census of Pre-Nineteenth-Century Italian Paintings in North American Public Collections. Cambridge, Mass., 1972, pp. 182, 272, 609, confuse it with 58.189.2.
Federico Zeri with the assistance of Elizabeth E. Gardner. Italian Paintings: A Catalogue of the Collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Sienese and Central Italian Schools. New York, 1980, p. 82, pl. 53, date this panel and 58.189.2 late in Sano's career, and suggest that they may come from the same predella as a "Nativity" and a "Flight into Egypt" (both Pinacoteca Vaticana, Rome).
Fabrizio Mancinelli in The Vatican Collections: The Papacy and Art. Exh. cat., The Metropolitan Museum of Art. New York, 1982, p. 144, under no. 74, notes that it has been suggested that the two Metropolitan Museum panels and the two Vatican panels belonged to the same predella [see Ref. Zeri and Gardner 1980], but dates the two Vatican panels 1445–50.
