King of England, Scotland and Ireland ( 1660-1685). After the Restoration his aim was to recover the artworks that were lost during the interregnum in stead of collecting new works. Under Charles II the court collected more French and Dutch art than Italian art. The landscapes were dominant in his collection (Reist et al. 2014).
