Anthony van Dyck

$ 2.99

The most prominent Flemish Baroque artist of the seventeenth century, Anthony van Dyck was a prolific painter of portraits of European aristocracy, most notably for Charles I and his family. He also executed religious and mythological works and was a fine draftsman and etcher. Along with his contemporary Diego Velázquez, van Dyck revolutionised the genre of portraiture, elevating its status in the arts. Through his evolution of style, the Fleming master would become the dominant influence on English portrait-painting for the next 150 years. Delphi’s Masters of Art Series presents the world’s first digital e-Art books, allowing readers to explore the works of great artists in comprehensive detail. This volume presents van Dyck’s complete paintings in beautiful detail, with concise introductions, hundreds of high quality images and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
