Painting oil on a table measuring 40 x 30 cm without frame and 48 x 38 with a frame depicting a high bishop of the Venetian school of the first half of the eighteenth century.

Very curious and refined painting representing an important religious figure of the time; very delicate colors of the dress and of the stole around the neck that have the same colors of the background, on which stands this figure that shows humanity, goodness and sense of loyalty following the most intimate dictates of the Christian religion.

Also interesting is the coffee table with this bright green cloth with well-designed objects and colored bearers on it, most likely of some symbolic value.
Even the well-tapered hands together with the good and at the same time serious look are characteristics of this important character.

Probably this painting was a sketch for a larger canvas or table and served as a tribute to this bishop, portrayed in a very important phase of his life, probably a career advancement.
To underline the beauty of Venetian painting; even when the dimensions are small, the colors are able to express themselves strongly giving us a sense of peace and harmony, creating a true bond between the character represented here and the viewer.
