I like neoclassical stuff too. He's a southerner but I dig Titian's stuff. His Venus of Urbino is one of my favorite paintings (and I hate Manet's profane Olympia).
The problem and benefit of these sorts of works is that the narrative is so allusive and involved that I often find it inaccessible without a history/mythology lesson. I'm guessing the first pic you posted has to do with the dude who founded the Jesuits but beyond that I'm lost as to who is who and what they're up to.
The second looks to be an adoration (I'm a little adorationed & annunciationed out), but I'm never able to appreciate the difference between one adoration and another in terms of narrative oriented non-technical aspects. Storywise, you seen one adoration you've seen 'em all. I prefer the mythological stories to the Christian ones even though I usually need it explained to me.
