A Victorian Equestrian Bronze Figure of Charles I

Circa 1860

Measurements: Overall height: 37cm (14.5in)



Cast bronze on sienna marble base. Bronze 30.5cm (12in).

Inspired perhaps by the plaster cast made for the 1851 Great Exhibition of the Hubert Le Sueur’s 17th century masterpiece that faces Whitehall from its plinth in Trafalgar Square, the present bronze   can be seen to reflect Victorian interest in historical sentiment that inspired such organisations as the Jacobite Legitimist League and the Society of King Charles the Martyr (founded 1894).
