Charles I by Anthony van Dyck

Artwork Detail Request a print

This print is a copy of Hollar’s etched portrait of King

Charles I, seen against the backdrop of London, his

former capital. Hollar’s original etching was made in the

year that the king was executed and would have been

popular among those distressed by the disruption of

the old political order. Given the topical nature of this

subject and the general popularity of his work, many of

Hollar’s prints were copied during his lifetime.
