One such masterpiece is "The Continence of Scipio, " a captivating oil on canvas painting from around 1706. Its intricate details bring to life the story of Scipio's self-control. In another corner of this vibrant era, we find ourselves amidst the chaos of the English Civil War with "Royalist cavalry at the Battle of Naseby. " This vivid color lithograph transports us to 1645 when brave soldiers fought for their beliefs on English soil. Amidst political turmoil, Charles I emerges as an iconic figure through a striking chromolithograph portrait.
