Antoine van Dyck (Antwerp 1599-London 1641)
Antoine van Dyck born March 22, 1599 in Antwerp and died December 9, 1641 in Blackfriars, near London, is a Baroque painter and engraver, mostly portraitist, who was the main court painter in England, after having enjoyed great success in Italy and Flanders. He is particularly famous for his portraits of King Charles I of England, his family and the court, painted with a casual elegance that will influence English portrait painters for nearly a century and a half. He also painted religious and mythological subjects, and was also a master of etching.
