    In possession from: Unknown to 1940

    Location: Palazzo Pitti

    Notes:

    In 1940, at the outbreak of WWII, Italian superintendents began to transfer collections outside of city centers. Giovanni Poggi, Superintendent of the Florentine Galleries, transferred most of the city's artwork to villas in the Tuscan countryside. In the fall of 1942, with increased Allied bombing of Italian cities, Poggi and other superintendents made additional evacuations from city centers.
