Entered the collection in 1935.
The composition is based on the printed illustrations to Parable about a Maid Who Died without Confession with a Burden of Lechery Sin - a part from the book of religious stories Velikoye zertsalo, popular in the XVIII - first half of the XIX centuries. Repeatedly reprinted versions of illustrations on this subject are thoroughly studied in the survey of D.Roginsky Russkiye narodnye kartinki (Book III Pritchi i listy dukhovnye. SPb., 1881. P.43. N 701)).
