Originally, the panel painting featuring the Visitation was part of an altarpiece whose three other panel paintings have survived in various collections. One of them was the panel with the Cross-bearing from Vyšší Brod, according to which the South Bohemian painter is named. It appears to have originated in a Český Krumlov workshop which drew inspiration from the earlier Late Beautiful Style tradition of Bohemian panel painting. Abandoning precision of decoration of metal-plated areas of paintings and sculptures is typical of the post-Hussite Wars period. The decoration schemes are simpler, and less technically demanding methods are used for décors.
