Craig’ London blog> Craig’s Queen’s Gallery review  I’ve written a review and posted some photos on my blog

The restoration of the monarchy in 1660 after the turbulence of the English Civil War and Oliver Cromwell's rule led to a resurgence of the arts in England, encouraged by Charles II's patronage and his love of collecting great works of art to decorate his royal apartments. It also helped him to glorify the restored monarchy, and reinforce his position as the country's rightful king.

The centrepiece of the exhibition will be John Michael Wright's monumental portrait of Charles II in his coronation robes, and will also include old master paintings, tapestries and silver-gilt furniture, to showcase the beauty and richness of Charles II's court.
