The Portrait of Pope Innocent X is an oil on canvas portrait by the Spanish painter Diego Velázquez, which he finished during a trip to Italy around 1650. Study after Velázquez's Portrait of Pope Innocent X is a 1953 painting by the Irish-born artist Francis Bacon. The work shows a distorted version of the Portrait of Innocent X painted by the Spanish artist Diego Velázquez in 1650. The work is one of a series of variants of the Velázquez painting which Bacon uted throughout the 1950s and early 1960s, over a total of forty-five works. When asked why he was compelled to revisit the subject so often, Bacon replied that he had nothing against the Popes, that he merely sought "an excuse to use these colours, and you can't give ordinary clothes that purple colour without getting into a sort of false fauve manner."

A smaller version is housed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
