Eugenio Pacelli, the future Pope Pius XII owned this original, hand-painted portrait of Pius X when he was nuncio in Bavaria. The interesting fact about it is that Pius XII first beatified and then canonized Pius X in 1954.
On the back of the painting is his calling card. Monseigneur E. Pacelli, Archevique de Sardes, Nonce Apostelique. An additional tag is in German. Nuziatura Apostolica in Baviera, No 14.
This is a very rare and very desirable artifact in the Collection.
