 Charles II: Art and Power

 Thursday 25 January 2018

 After a period of austere Cromwellian rule, the restoration of the monarchy in 1660 led to a resurgence of the arts in England which played a major part in glorifying the restored Stuart dynasty.   From the monumental portrait of Charles II in his coronation robes to glittering silver-gilt furniture and old master paintings, this exhibition shows the rich material world of Charles II’s court and the role of the arts in the re-establishment of the Stuart monarchy.

Cost: £33 includes introductory talk at the gallery & audioguide
