In my previous post I was asking if anyone knew the painter and the title of this painting.

A very nice person Don Campbell took the time to reply and the painting is in the Prado Museum in Madrid, one of the great museum of the world. It is entitled The Allegory of Justice and Peace by painter Giaquinto Corrado, who was Court Painter to King Ferdinand VI of Spain. The work was done in 1753-54.

The site of the Prado gives the full description of what we are looking at, like many paintings done for Official reasons or propaganda, the moral message dominates and glorifies the King and his policies which God approves of. Like many great painters of his time Corrado studied and worked in Rome before going to Spain. He would later retire to Naples which then was under the rule of Spain.
