    The present picture is a copy after the portrait of King Charles II painted when a prince in exile in Holland, c.1648, by Adriaen Hanneman (c.1601-c.1671), of which there is a seventeenth Century half-length copy in the National Portrait Gallery, London. The original is now lost, but was engraved by R. Gaywood (in reverse) and by H. Danckerts. Other three-quarter-length versions can be found at Knole (National Trust, Kent) and Gorhambury House, Hertfordshire, as well as miniatures, of which there is an example in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.
