From the second series of Nicholson’s Twelve Portraits. Masterpieces of subtle satire, Twelve Portraits is generally credited as being Nicholson’s greatest set. It includes depictions of Queen Victoria, Sarah Bernhardt, Whistler, Kipling and Mark Twain. Early in 1901 a second series of 12 portraits was proposed. Heinemann sent Nicholson a list of suggested sitters in July, but work on the project proceeded very slowly and it was not until the summer of 1902 that the portraits were finally delivered.

Pope Leo XIII (2 March 1810 – 20 July 1903), born Vincenzo Gioacchino Raffaele Luigi Pecci to an Italian comital family, was the 256th Pope of the Roman Catholic Church, reigning from 1878 to 1903. He was the oldest pope (reigning until the age of 93), and had the third longest pontificate, behind his immediate predecessor Pius IX and John Paul II.
