    I believe this painting is of “Saints Ambrose and Charles Presented to Christ by Our Lady” by Carlo Maratta (1685-1690). This is in the Basilica of Sts. Charles Borromeo and St. Ambrose on the Via del Corso, which is about a 10-minute walk from the Piazza del Popolo.
    You can see St. Charles’ motto “humilitas” in one of the angel’s hands. St. Ambrose is harder to see, down around 7:00, with a miter on his head and a book in his hands.
    The church also contains a reliquary with the heart of St. Charles Borromeo.
    Jesuits know St. Charles Borromeo for being the one from whom St. Luigi Gonzaga received his first Holy Communion.

    Even on my phone I can see the composition leads your eyes from the bottom up to Jesus.

    What a terrible shame about the Wallpaper Table left in front of The High Altar.

    You would think that the workmen would have taken it away before knocking off work.
