After the Glorious Revolution, Benedetto Gennari had to leave London. He followed his dethroned royal master into exile, but after a few years he returned to his native Bologna. In the last twenty years of his life, he did not paint much, or not much that’s widely known. This picture of Theseus with Ariadne and Phaedra, the Daughters of Minos, finished in 1702 and now located in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, is the only one I could find.
