- Curator's comments
- This is one from a series of portraits (and title) of cardinals published by Domenico de' Rossi (1691-1729), continuing the series that his adopted father Giovanni Giacomo de' Rossi had started. Arranged in chronological order of their creation, the cardinals are each represented with their own coat of arms alongside those of the reigning pope.
For a complete series see 1848,0304.126-195, but this was broken up in 1873 and distributed mainly in the portrait series.
