    Pere Vall, formerly known as the Master of the Cardona Pentecost, was born and active in Cardona but is also recorded as working in Barcelona between 1405 and 1408. The present work is part of a group of panels which formed the lower register, or banco of a large retablo possibly the Retable of the Pentecost of the Church at Cardona.

    According to Post, six pieces from this retablo belonged to James W. Barney of New York (fig.1). Two panels from the Barney group (one depicting the Madonna Dolorosa and the other Saints Anne and Lawrence) were offered at Sotheby's New York, 28 January 1999, lot 426. Two further works from the group are in the Clowes Collection at the Indianapolis Museum of Art (Saints Michael and Amador and Saints Stephen and Mary Magdalene).
