  • Step into the Charles I: King and Collector (27 January — 15 April 2018) and explore the exquisite tastes of the authoritarian King - entrance to the RA is included
  • See over 100 works of art spanning classical sculptures, Baroque paintings, amazing miniatures, and magnificent tapestries
  • Get up close to works by some of the finest artists of the past – Titian, Mantegna, Holbein, Dürer – and commissioning leading contemporary artists such as Van Dyck and Rubens

He might have been a warmongering king, but Charles was also a king with refined taste. See over 100 works of art from classical sculptures to Baroque paintings. There's Titian, Mantegna, Holbein, Dürer and more, all in the Royal Academy's Charles I: King and Collector Exhibition (27 January — 15 April 2018). Naturally, this includes entrance to the Royal Academy.

While King Charles I isn't winning a lot of votes for 'Top Monarch', we can't deny the man had taste. During his reign he stashed away expensive, fancy clothes, furniture, and art.

It's this collection that now takes its place at the Royal Academy. See over 100 works of art spanning classical sculptures, Baroque paintings, amazing miniatures, and magnificent tapestries.

This stunning exhibition demonstrates the indelible impact Charles and his taste in art had on England at the time. A must for history buffs and art fans everywhere!

Insider tip

Charles was crowned King in 1625, because his older brother Henry died aged 18. King Charles was so cantankerous he wound up dissolving Parliament four years into his reign!
