The above painting of Saint Paul, catalogued as 'pittore del XVIII secolo', is coming up for sale at Wannenes Auctions in Genoa. It is a copy of a known painting. Can you find the original?

No prizes, just for fun.

Update - Congratulations to readers Andrew Quick and Bob Hawkins who spotted that the above is a version of Batoni's Saint Paul found in the collection of Basildon Park, Berkshire, now in the hands of the National Trust.
