This exhibition features examples of the various ways in which European rulers and their aristocratic followers have been represented on paper from the 16th century to 1900. In several instances (as with Henri II and Louis XIV of France and Elizabeth I and Victoria of England), it includes different interpretations of the same subject. The majority of these images are skillful propaganda intended to convey the splendor, power, and virtues of the various monarchs.
