Thanks for that, can I ask where you found it?

Ive seen this next one in person, and it is surprisingly small

Franz Hals' The Laughing Cavalier was shown earlier, absolutely marvelous.

The Claude Monet works from Giverny are just glorious

Yes. Though it was a trial in name only. Mostly, it consisted of Pope Stephen VI screaming accusations at a dead man, and taking his silence as an admission of guilt.
Poor Formosus was then stripped, dragged through the streets and thrown in a river.

Stephen was eventually imprisoned and strangled to death.

He sounds like he had some serious issues...
Well it's another weird piece of history I didn't know. Thanks for sharing.
