Anthon van Dyck - Family Portrait

Family Portret by Anthon van Dyck (1599-1641)

In 2009 I visited the famous Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg, Russia. For me this painting was one of the highlights. It is painted in circa 1621 by Anthon van Dyck. It is possible that the family is that of the landscape painter Jan Wildens. Look at the gaze of the man and the woman.

Self-portrait painted in 1641. He died shortly afterwards.

Anthony van Dyck was born in Antwerp. He became famous in England where he became the leading court painter.
