WH. [Monogram of Wenceslaus Hollar within plate.]
1641.
Etching, sheet 160 x 255mm (6¼ x 10"). Trimmed;
The execution of Thomas Wentworth, Earl of Strafford (1593-1641), lord lieutenant of Ireland. In the deteriorating political climate leading up to the English Civil War, Strafford was recalled to London by Charles I (whose great supporter he was) in 1640, but was accused of high treason and imprisoned in the Tower of London shortly after. Strafford was tried in March 1641. When these failed, the Commons passed a bill of attainder (an act of legislation declaring Strafford guilty and punishable by death). Charles I, who had previously sworn to protect Strafford, both appeared in person to ask for him not to be condemned to death, and sent soldiers to the Tower in an unsuccessful attempt to free him. Eventually, however, Charles assented to the bill of attainder and Strafford was beheaded at Tower Hill as shown here (he was spared the traditional punishment for treason, of being hung, drawn and quartered). The death of Strafford, rather than resolving the tension between parliament and the monarchy, merely aggravated it, as the king could not forgive those who had forced him to abandon one of his most trusted aides. Etching by Wenceslaus Hollar (1607-77), Bohemian printmaker who spent around 32 of his 52 years as a professional artist working in England. An outstanding draughtsman and topographical etcher, Hollar's work was enormously varied and has done much to inform the the way that 17th century London is visualised.
