Sale Of The Late King's Goods

Sale Of The Late King's Goods


A rigorous account of the formation and dispersal of King Charles I’s art collection, this book reveals the entangled relationship between art and power, taking the reader on a captivating journey through history.

Author Jerry Brotton presents fascinating connections between war, revolution, and regicide, shifting from London to Venice, Mantua, Madrid, Paris and the Low Countries.

He re-examines the Parliamentary Act for ‘The sale of the late king’s goods’, and how Cromwell’s republican regime sold off nearly 2,000 paintings, tapestries, statues and drawings in an attempt to settle the dead king’s debts and raise money for the Commonwealth’s military forces.
