In 1814 George traded four paintings from his collection for this single outstanding work by Rubens, depicting Charles I in the guise of St George. The painting had once belonged to the Stuart king. In acquiring it, George was making reference to his own namesake, the patron saint of England, as well as paying homage to Charles I’s magnificent artistic patronage.
