Charles I receiving a rose (1829)

Eugène Lami: Charles I receiving a rose from a young girl when about to be brought as a prisoner to Carisbrooke Castle, where he will soon be condemned and executed

Lami (1800-1890) worked at the studio of Horace Vernet then studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris with Camille Roqueplan and Paul Delaroche under Antoine-Jean Gros. While there, he learned watercolor technique from Richard Parkes Bonington and later became a founding member of the Society of French Watercolorists.
