About

This exhibition has now ended!

At the centre of this display is the intriguing and gory painting of the Execution of Charles I by an unknown Dutch artist. This painting, probably based on eye-witness accounts and contemporary engravings, records the execution of Charles I on 30 January 1649 at Whitehall, after a long and bitter civil war. Prints, paintings and miniatures from the collection also feature.
