Charles II: Art & Power; Charles I: King and Collector



From BBC, Charles II, Art and Power, a review by Will Gompertz

Royal Collection Trust

The Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace

Friday, 8 Dec 2017 - Sunday, 13 May 2018

"After over a decade of austere Cromwellian rule, the restoration of the monarchy in 1660 led to a resurgence of the arts in England. The court of Charles II became the centre for the patronage of leading artists and the collecting of great works of art, which served not only as decoration for the royal apartments but also as a means of glorifying the restored monarchy and reinforcing the position of Charles II as the rightful king".
