Lillian Malcove purchased  the 18th century triptych in 1968  from the Blumka Gallery in New York  and the 19th century icon in the same year from the Collector's Corner, also in New York.  These works are part of the Malcove Collection, a permanent collection donated to the University of Toronto in 1982 and now one of the University of Toronto Art Centre's three permanent collections. The Malcove Collection Video project is supported by Janet Dewan and Barbara Tangney in memory of Marian F.K. Ade.
