Lawrence evidently viewed this portrait, together with that of the Pope, as high points in the Waterloo cycle. He wrote that ‘if what I have done here in the portraits of the Pope and the Cardinal be compared only with my own works, I have had complete success’. Cardinal Consalvi was the papal representative at the Congress of Vienna.
