Charles II

Charles Stuart (1630-85), son of Charles I, whom he succeeded as Charles II, King of England in 1660. DPG424 is an early copy or studio replica of Wright's lost three-quarter-length portrait, which must date from c.1660-65, known in replicas such as that in the National Portrait Gallery, with the orb in his right hand (NPG 531). Before 1980 DPG424 was attributed to Greenhill in all Dulwich catalogues, but it had been correctly identified as a copy after Wright by Collins Baker in 1912.
