The Diplomacy of Taste: Maratti, Contini, Bellori, and a Banquet Hosted by Carlo Barberini for the Ambassador of King James II

In 1687 Cardinal Carlo Barberini held a banquet at Palazzo Alle Quattro Fontane in honour of the British diplomatic delegation in Rome led by Roger Palmer, Earl of Castlemaine. Through the examination of commemorative texts, this essay investigates how the display of art served both as diplomatic tool and mean of (self)-celebration during a significant phase in the relations between the Holy See and King James II of England.
