A99 belongs to a lost altar-piece of which two other fragments are known showing The Virgin and Childand Sts Leonard and James the Great. The apostle Bartholomew is usually depicted with a knife, the instrument of his martyrdom. St Julian, a nobleman who accidentally murdered his parents, founded a hospice for travellers in atonement. The artist formerly known as the Master of Santo Spirito has been plausibly identified as Agnolo di Domenico.
