This is the Signed original Gouache painting by Cecil Doughty.

Charles II is widely known as the Merry Monarch, he is shown here dancing with his favourite actress Nell Gwyn.

However the feature published in Look and Learn issue 520, 1st January 1972 is at odds to point out his sense of duty such as his organising the fire fighting during the Great Fire of London in 1666. Charles was as well known for his interest in science and education as much as for horses, gambling, entertainments and his fondness for the ladies.
