description: ("Innocent X (Giambattista Pamphili) was pope from 1644 until his death in 1655. Although he was not very interested in the visual arts, he followed tradition and gave several papal commissions for artistic projects. Algardi was the sculptor most frequently called upon by Innocent X. This sensitive portrait captures many details of the pope's costume as well as his intelligent, quiet face.",)
