Anthony Van Dyck; Transforming British Portraiture, by Catharine MacLeod - SOLD OUT
Talk | The Wallace Collection
Thursday 19 November 2015 - 14:30 until 15:30
This Autumn's series of lectures looks at portraiture through the ages.
Catharine MacLeod discusses the arrival of the Flemish artist Anthony van Dyck in England in 1632. It was arguably the most significant event in the history of British portraiture. In less than ten years, he transformed painting in Britain, introducing elegant, animated new poses, executed in a broad, painterly style that continued to dominate British portraiture until the 20th century.
