This painting belongs to a lost altarpiece of which two other fragments are known showing 'The Virgin and Child' and '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.
