Portrait of Livio Odescalchi

Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Livio Odescalchi (1655-1713) was one of the most prominent figures in Rome during his lifetime. He was the nephew of Pope Innocent XI and a great collector of Roman antiquities. This portrait was engraved about 1677, with the addition of an elaborate frame, by Pietro Aquila. Born in Flanders, Voet was one of the many Flemish painters who made their fortune in Rome, in Voet's case, as a portraitist of the wealthy. For more information on this portrait, please see Federico Zeri's 1976 catalogue no. 329, pp. 455-456.
