Engraving. 290 x 210mm (11½ x 8¼").
A half portrait of Jean Francoise Paul de Gondi (1613-1679), wearing clerical dress and a crucifix in a trompe l'oeil stone window. Gondi was a politically motivated churchman, elected Cardinal de Retz in 1650, and was a key player in The Fronde, earning himself the longstanding emnity of Louis XIV. Throughout his career he was protected and supported by Pope Innocent X. Their relationship proved exceptionally forunate after Retz escaped from prison, during which he became the Archbishop of Paris, and was welcomed by the Pope in Rome. Innocent X refused to let him resign as archbishop despite immense pressure from the King. Eventually, yielding to the King's demands, he returned to Paris after the death of his nemesis Cardinal Mazarin but was compensated handsomely with income from twelve estates. Petitjean and Wickert assert that Nanteuil's engraving was after the portrait by Jean Morin after de Champaigne. Frontis "Histoire des Papes" 1653.
