Description

The portrait is a reduced-scale copy of a portrait of Charles I (1600–1649) painted in 1635–6. Among the best versions of the portrait is the one in the collection of the Duke of Norfolk, Arundel Castle, Sussex. The composition was very popular, and numerous versions and copies exist, such as in: the National Portrait Gallery, London; Wilton House; Welbeck Abbey; and Sudeley Castle. The present copy would appear to be later, and was possibly made in the eighteenth century. In the late nineteenth century, when noted by Cole, it hung in the Long Gallery.
