Portrait of Pope Leo XII, Louis Royer, 1827

marble (rock), h 70cm. More details

The sculptor Louis Royer studied in Rome during the years 1823 to 1827. A highpoint of this period was undoubtedly his portrait of Pope Leo XII. Unusually, the pope posed personally for the young artist. This was not only important for Royer’s reputation, but also ensured that the bust was a good likeness.
