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.

Probably (Koetser, New York, New York and London, England). Probably (Newhouse Galleries, New York);{1} The Clowes Fund, Indianapolis, in 1964; and on long-term loan to the Indianapolis Museum of Art since 1971; given to the Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields, in 2020.

(1) Both Koetser and Newhouse are given as former owners in an unpublished manuscript in the IMA Clowes Archive; see Mark Roskill, “Clowes Collection Catalogue,” (unpublished typed manuscript, 1968).
