The painter of this work, Alejo Fernández, was one of the most important artists of the transitional period between the 15th and 16th centuries.

Alejo Fernández moved from Cordoba to Seville at a time when there was considerable demand for artists in Andalusia's capital due to the commerce with the Americas, which ushered in new tastes closely linked to the Italian Renaissance. This work is believed to be from his early period, and is from the convent of Santa Clara in Cordoba. In addition to the figure of Christ tied to the column and the denial of Saint Peter, it is thought to represent the infantes Alfonso and Violante of Aragon, on whose houses in Cordoba the monastery was built, as well as Doña Sancha Díaz, the sister of the founding canon and its first abbess.
