George’s fascination with his Stuart ancestors extended to seventeenthcentury ceremonies. In the months before he was crowned in 1821, he studied historical precedent by buying numerous prints of the coronation procession of James II in 1685. His close examination of earlier dress and ritual was reflected in the costumes and settings for his own coronation.

Probably purchased in 1821
