This late 18th, early 19th century Spanish colonial painting, oil paint on a fine linen canvas, represents the 18th century Pope, Clement XIV, who carried the title of Pontificis Maximi which has come to mean many different things to many different eras, epochs and generations. The original translation always stood for; 'greatest bridge builder', which later evolved to become 'one who sacrifices' and then ultimately, 'greatest high priest'. Pontificis Maximi is depicted here on his white horse, in period costume, with a verdant landscape in the background. With Latin inscriptions along the lower edge. Mexico. Circa 1750 - 1800.
Displayed in a period hand carved wooden frame.
Dimensions: approximately 21.5 inches vertical x 17 inches horizontal.
Condition: in overall excellent condition with only minor losses. Small patched repair on verso.
