How to find the answer

How to find the answer: Search [Velázquez pope] to learn he painted Pope Innocent X (Giambattista Pamphilj). Search [Innocent X cardinal in pectore] to discover he was elevated to cardinal in pectore in August 1627 and published in November 1629, which means his appointment was secret for two years.
