Equestrian Portrait of Charles I
About this Piece

An oil painting interpreting 'Equestrian Portrait of Charles I' by Anthony van Dyck, stretched and framed in England in an antiqued gold radiata pine moulding.

Van Dyck became court painter to King Charles I in 1632, seven years after his corontation as king of Great Britain and Ireland. The original painting, dated about 1637, shows Charles I sitting elegantly stop a magnificent horse as if at the head of his knights. Van Dyck was particularly good at creating images expressing the king's belief in his divine right to govern. However, the outbreak of the Civil War followed not long afterwards which ultimately led to the KIng's execution in 1649.
