    Anthonis van Dyck (1599-1641)

    The Flemish painter and graphic artist Anthony van Dyck was born in Antwerp and mainly painted portraits. He was a collaborator of Peter Paul Rubens. He received his artistic training with the painter Hendrick van Balen (1575-1632). In 1620, van Dyck traveled to England and soon entered into the service of James I. He studied works of the Italian Renaissance in the courtly art collection and was inspired by Veronese and Titian. In 1632, van Dyck moved to London. He there worked as court painter and portraitist for Charles I, who raised him to the peerage. The largest collection of van Dyck's works is still in the property of the English Crown. Further works are on display in important museum collections, including the Tate Britain in London and the Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum in Braunschweig. (nlu)
