In 1823, the Catholic Church has come to experience two major losses:
March 19 of that year marked the death of Spanish Cardinal Luis María de Borbón y Vallabriga, who was only 46. Five months later, on August 20, his "superior" Pope Pius VII died in Vatican.
This miniature (it was most likely executed in autumn of 1823) shows these two men next to each other. It is a work of a good Spanish artist of the 1st quarter of the 19th century.
Cardinal Luis María de Borbón y Vallabriga (May 22, 1777 Cadalso de los Vidrios - March 19, 1823, Madrid; CLICK HERE) was a son of a morganatic marriage of Luis de Borbon y Farnesio, Infante of Spain and 13th Count of Chnichon, and wife Maria Teresa de Vallabriga y Rozas, Espaniol y Drummond. He was the 14th Count of Chinchon (1785-1803), Grandee of Spain Frist Class (August 4, 1799) and 1st Marquis de San Martin de la Vega.
He was Archbishop of Seville (1799-1814), Archbishop of Toledo (1799-1823) and became the Primate of Spain and Cardinal-Priest of Santa-Maria della Scala in 1800. Most importantly, in the late 1790s, his portraits were painted by Goya (see our image nr.6).
Pope Pius VII, born Barnaba Niccolo Maria Luigi Chiaramonti, was born on August 14, 1742, in Cesena, Italy. He was elected the Pope on November 30, 1799, in the Benedectine Monastery of San Giorgio in Venice.
From the time of his election as the Pope to the fall of Napoleon in 1815, Pius VII' reign was completely taken up in dealing with France. He and the Emperor were continually in conflict (for Pius VII' extensive biography, CLICK HERE; see also our web #41552 ).
