Pazzi family, Florence. Count Giacomo Michelozzi, Tarvarnelle, Florence. Henry Goldman [1857-1937], New York, by 1922. (Duveen Brothers, Inc., London and New York); purchased 26 April 1937 by The A.W. Mellon Educational and Charitable Trust, Pittsburgh; gift 1937 to NGA.
 According to the 1922 catalogue of the Goldman collection (see note 3), the sculpture is "from a private chapel in one of the palaces belonging to the Pazzi family in Florence."
 The Duveen prospectus for the painting (in NGA curatorial files) describes the sculpture as having been made originally for one of the Pazzi family palaces, and then owned by Michelozzi, "in whose family it had remained for over a century."
