This painting once formed an integral part of one of the most important works in Glasgow's collections, 'The Adulteress Brought before Christ' by Titian. This male head was detached from the main part of the painting at an unknown date, perhaps because part of the canvas directly underneath it had been damaged in some way. The knee of the man whose head this is, wearing striped hose, can still be seen at the right-hand side of the larger part of the painting.
