The work was commissioned to the painter Giulia Lama, a well-known student of Piazzetta, to replace the altarpiece The Assumption done by Jacopo Tintoretto, that had gone missing. 

During the last World War the painting was transferred to the church's storage to assure its safety where it remained for decades; only recently was it put back in its original location after having had various restorations.
