The painting is listed in the 17-18th century inventories of the Villa di Artiminio from 1609; such an early date supports the hypothesis that it was given, along with the Medusa, by cardinal Francesco Maria del Monte to the Grand Duke Ferdinando I. It was found in the Uffizi storage facilities in 1916. A self portrait of the artist while painting can be seen in the reflections on the glass bottle.
