On April 25, 1483, with the painter brothers Evangelista and Giovanni Ambrogio de Predis, on the one hand, and Bartolomeo Scorione, prior of the Confraternity of the Immaculate Conception, on the other, the contract for an altarpiece to be placed on the altar of the chapel of that institution in the church of San Francesco Grande in Milan was stipulated. This chapel had been founded in the 14th century by Beatrice d’Este, wife of Ludovico Sforza, and was destroyed in 1576.
There is a theory that during this long financial dispute with the Brotherhood, Leonardo sold this original work for 400 lire to a private client, perhaps the French King Louis XII. It is also widely hypothesized that the panel was a gift from Ludovico the Moor to Maximilian I of Habsburg when he married Blanca Maria Sforza, so the panel would have been in Innsbruck before passing to France as another wedding gift, this time from Leonor of Austria, daughter of Philip the Fair and Joan the Mad and, therefore, granddaughter of Maximilian, who married Francis I.
