Among Titian's very last works, produced in 1575-76, two were official commissions: one for the Palazzo Ducale, depicting Doge Antonio Grimani Kneeling Before the Faith, and the second for Philip II, depicting Spain Succouring Religion. The latter commemorates the participation of the Spanish fleet at the Battle of Lepanto.
