17th-century English School, Portrait Miniature Of King Charles I - Antique Oil On Copper

£895    $1,142    €1,032
This exquisite mid-17th-century portrait miniature depicts a gentleman, believed to be King Charles I, wearing a lace collar.
 
Following his execution in 1649, numerous portraits were produced in varying styles. Oftentimes, these were based on earlier works but we’ve been unable to track down the source of this particular image. It appears to present him in his late 40s, which would match the style of his outfit - popular in the 1640s. Charles was born in 1600.
 
The portrait is notable for the particularly ruddy cheeks coupled with a sense of malaise in the eyes. It’s a quieter portrayal, reflective and sombre. Not particularly regal or grand. Here’s a King reduced to a mere mortal.
 
The work is an oil on copper and presented in a splendid giltwood scroll and foliate frame. A wonderfully historic piece.
