First Painting of the Cardinal's Galero

You see Cardinal Jacopo Caetani degli Stefaneschi (* Rome, 1270 circa – † Avignon, June 23, 1343)  genuflecting in front of Jesus Christ. On the Oriental carpet, decorated with red and blue eagles,  you can recognize the red galero lying in front of him.
This is the first picture of the galero, the hat given by the pope to the cardinals during the consitory.

A painting out of my collection
The artist is unknown.
