Lot Essay

This miniature may be considered to be one of the group of the official likenesses des Granges painted during Charles II's exile. Des Granges followed Charles to the Hague in 1647 and was appointed "His Majesty's Limner in Scotland" in 1651. Charles is depicted wearing the sash of the Order of the Garter thereby emphasising his role as the head of the Elizabethan chivalry
