  • This study of a plumed horse probably relates to Jones’s designs for the last masque ever performed at Whitehall Palace: Salmacida Spolia (The Spoils of Salamis) written by Sir William Davenant for performance in the year 1640. The visions of peace and plenty celebrated in the masque rang hollow when judged against actual events. The king’s eleven years of rule without Parliament had come to an end with the rebellion of the Scottish Covenanters which left King Charles I at war with his own subjects.
