1876 Steel Engraving George Monck Duke Albemarle Restoration Portrait XEOA9

189441_XEOA9_004

This is an original 1876 black and white steel engraving that depicts George Monck, 1st Duke of Albemarle, an English who fought at Cromwell's side during the commonwealth of England. However, he was a sneaky creature well versed in the art of politics, and after nonchalantly promoting the reinstatement of the monarchy and Charles II, the king was eventually able to return to England from his mainland exile.

Period Paper is thrilled to offer a collection of steel engraved portraits that provides a fascinating look at the English nobility of the 17th century. During this turbulent time, the British Isles were torn apart by two sets of divided factions, parliament versus the monarchy and the Catholics against the Anglicans and members of the Puritan movement. Each portrait, featured here in incredible detail, belongs to an individual whose religion, decisions, and political standing helped to shape the England we know and love today.
