Self-portrait (1613–1614)Sir Anthony van Dyck was, after Peter Paul Rubens, the most-prominent Flemish Baroque painter of the 17th century.

Charles I with M. de St Antoine (1633)

A prolific painter of portraits of European aristocracy, he also executed many works on religious and mythological subjects and was a fine draftsman and etcher.

Elena Grimaldi (1623)

After long periods spent in Antwerp and trips in Italy, van Dyck established in England, where he became highly successful. King Charles I appointed him “Principalle Paynter in ordinary of their Majesties” and knighted him.

Queen Henrietta Maria (1632)

He is most famous for his portraits of Charles I of England and his family and court, painted with a relaxed elegance that was to be the dominant influence on English portrait-painting for the next 150 years. He also painted biblical and mythological subjects, displayed outstanding facility as a draftsman, and was an important innovator in watercolour and etching.

Antoon van Dyck

22 martie 1599, Antwerpen – 9 decembrie 1641, Londra

 

Antoon van Dyck a fost unul dintre cei mai mari pictori și creatori de gravuri flamanzi, reprezentant al stilului baroc, discipol al lui Peter Paul Rubens, inovator în folosirea gravurii cu „acquaforte”. A devenit celebru în calitate de pictor al curții regelui Carol I Stuart al Angliei.

Deja de la vârsta de paisprezece ani, van Dyck picta portrete și autoportrete valoroase. În anul 1613 a devenit asistentul lui Rubens, cunoscut în întreaga Europă. Măiestria tehnicii tânărului artist era atât de mare, încât Rubens, vorbind despre compozițiile proiectate de el însuși, dar executate de asistenții săi, nu ezita să prezinte lucrările tânărului van Dyck ca fiind ale sale.
