The patron was the widow of Isaac Bell, a prominent New Yorker in the second half of the nineteenth century. In 1906, the panels were removed from a bay window in their apartment in the Knickerbocker Building, on Fifth Avenue at Twenty-eighth Street.

Eugène Oudinot was apprenticed as a painter at the Choisy-le-Roi porcelain factory outside Paris, but he thereafter specialized in stained glass. He made large windows for ecclesiastical and secular installations in his atelier at Passy, just outside Paris.
