'The Apotheosis of James I' by Sir Peter Paul Rubens, 1632–33. This is a sketch for the central painting of Rubens’s famous ceiling in the Banqueting Hall of the Palace of Whitehall, London, commissioned by Charles I. It shows Charles’s father, James VI and I being crowned by figures personifying Religion, Faith, Justice, Victory and Minerva, on his way to heaven. Rubens’s completed painting was oval and is still in the Banqueting Hall.
