Charles I: King and Collector

Royal Academy of Arts, 27th January to 15th April

In a triumphant start to its 250th anniversary year, the Royal Academy is displaying one of the most impressive art collections of all time. In 1623 Prince Charles travelled incognito to Madrid to win the Spanish Infanta. He returned, instead, with paintings by Titian and Veronese and a voracious passion for art. By the time of his execution in 1649, Charles I had amassed over 1,500 works, including masterpieces by Mantegna, Rubens and Van Dyck (see his Charles I at the Hunt, below). Within months of his death the collection was dispersed throughout Europe. Here, 150 works are reunited.

Elsewhere in the issue: Dani Rodrik uncovers the truth behind the great globalisation lie—there were always going to be losers, Iona Craig delves into the war in Yemen—the world’s worst humanitarian disaster, Chris Tilbury explains why Britain urgently needs a plan for its failing prisons
