Van Dyck — Anthony van Dyck was a pupil of Rubens, and followed his master’s example by traveling to Italy as part of his artistic training. Like Rubens, he found inspiration in the Venetian Renaissance masters Titian and Giorgione. Van Dyck’s work is characterized by an enthusiasm for rich colors and a remarkable ability to depict the texture of fabric. Focusing his attention on the art of the portrait, he was appointed Court Painter to the English King Charles in 1632. The portraits he produced provide unrivaled visual insights into the noble men and women of the day.
