    Click-to-enlarge image available from here.

    Portrait of Innocent X is described in its current-location page (the source of the title image). A shorter description can be seen here (with a different coloration, click-to-enlarge image).

    That website sometimes includes detail images along with the painting and I thought this was the description of a detail image; but, though pertinent for this painting as well, it is of another painting (philatelists may recognize it) of him (his Catholic Encyclopedia bio) by this artist (his Catholic Encyclopedia bio).

    Perhaps a blogger had already seen Mr. Melcher’s blog when he wrote this a year later. It does point to this different coloration and description. The artist‘s (search for Diego, click adjacent link for works and descriptions) Wikipedia page and collection.

    Second of the 2 works by this artist, that have, so far, appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog, to also appear here.

    You know the line, “I was gonna make espresso?” It wasn’t in the script, Hackman ad-libbed it.
