Anthony van Dyck
Flemish, 1599-1641

About this artwork

Anthony van Dyck produced stand-alone portraits of famous men as well as those in his Iconography; all of them went through multiple states of engraving. This, the first state, included only the sitter’s head. Another artist likely added the body and framing elements to the four state. The final state would include text describing the sitter and his coat of arms. Baron Philippe Le Roy was a Flemish diplomat who would help end the Thirty Years’ War in 1648; Van Dyck had already painted his portrait in 1630 (Wallace Collection, London).
