Werkstatt des Pierre Subleyras (1699 - 1749)(?), Papst Benedikt XIV. (Prospero Lambertini, 1675-1758), nach 1746, Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen - Alte Pinakothek München, URL: https://www.sammlung.pinakothek.de/en/artwork/OrLbkz5G1V (Last updated on 12.12.2023)
This portrait of Prospero Lambertini, who became pope in 1740, follows in all details a 1746 oil painting by Pierre Subleyras at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. It is likely that the pastel was created in the artist's workshop. Unfortunately a large part of the centre of the surface has been abraded and destroyed.
