This is the unique original Gouache painting by Cecil Doughty.

King Alfred was a fighting King and yet he loved learning. This painting depicts one of his battles against the invading Danes. The Danes were a difficult enemy for the ponderous, though efficient, Saxons to fight.

They fled, regrouped and re-appeared, attacking ferociously from almost anywhere. But Alfred proved more than a match for them.
