This work is one of four signed originals of a much-copied portrait showing Charles I bearded and defiantly wearing his hat before his judges. This version was reputedly painted for Sir John Carew, who was one of his opponents, but the image later became a Royalist icon. The date of 1648 on the picture is that of the Old Style calendar, in which the new year did not begin until March 25th, therefore the work was actually painted in 1649 (New Style).
