Description If this drawing is indeed by Van de Venne it would be an extremely late work. It is certainly by a Netherlandish arist. Van de Venne was from a family of printers, booksellers and dealers in Middleburg in southern Holland, but settled in The Hague. This delicate wash drawing is crowded with detail of the king's departure for England from Scheveningen on the Dutch coast, close to The Hague. Charles had been in exile in Europe during the Commonwealth era following the English Civil War and the execution of his father Charles I.
Date made 1660
