Etching, sheet 150 x 190mm (5¾ x 7½"). Trimmed and glued to backing sheet.
After William of Orange landed at Torbay in November 1688, James II left London at the second time of asking (the first time his boat was intercepted at Faversham and a body of guards had to come and return him to London) and fled to France. Louis XIV had lavishly refurbished the chateau of St Germain-en-Laye, near Paris, for James and his family. It was the perfect environment for James and his exiled court, and if he had his own way he probably never would have left. Louis XIV, however, wanted James to travel to Ireland, and from there attempt to recover his crown from the insurgent William. Etching from a set of scenes from the Glorious Revolution and related events published by Adriaan Schoonebeek (1661-1705), Dutch printmaker who studied under Romeyn de Hooghe and later moved to Moscow to set up a printmaking workshop for Peter the Great.
