Few moments in British history are as iconic and significant as the one depicted in this grand and beautifully composed history painting, which shows the beleaguered monarch bowing to the barons’ wishes and signing the most famous document in our national story. The gilded gothic canopy above the throne draws all our attention towards King John and his momentous act.
