Listing Detail Tabs

Set against the backdrop of war, revolution and regicide, and moving from London to Venice, Mantua, Madrid, Paris and the Low Countries, this book explores the formation and dispersal of King Charles I’s art collection, one of the finest England has ever seen.
When the English Monarchy was restored in 1660, King Charles II ordered the repossession of many of these artworks, but despite his eagerness to settle political scores, the face of collecting had been changed forever. This book examines the abiding relationship between art and power, revealing how the current Royal Collection emerged from this turbulent period and paints its own vivid and dramatic picture of one of the greatest lost collections in English History.

Author: Jerry Brotton, published by Macmillan 2006, 436pp, h/c, dj with protective cover, colour photos.
