Portrait of the Artist

After Anthony van Dyck (Flemish, 1599-1641)

Currently on View in C300
Image Licensing

The Flemish painter Anthony van Dyck was one of the most successful portraitists of the 17th century. This painting is probably a copy after an original self-portrait of the artist. It may have been painted in England, where Van Dyck served as portraitist to the court of King Charles I. The graceful pose presents the artist as a gentleman, on a par with his aristocratic patrons.

Provenance research is on-going at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Please contact Annette Schlagenhauff, Curator of Special Projects, at aschlagenhauff@imamuseum.org, if you have questions, or if you have additional information to share with us.
