VAN DYCK, Anthony (after)

Icones Principum Virorum.

30 engravings, mostly 24 x 19 cm, laid paper, signed in the plate.

Mostly in passe-partout.

Collection of 30 original prints from Van Dyck's series "Icones Principum Virorum". The plan of this publication took shape after Van Dyck returned from Italy (1626) and before he went to England (1632). He made careful preparatory drawings in chalk and brush for the publication. He directed and revised the work of the best engravers of the Rubens workshop such as Lucas Vosterman, Schelte Adamsz. Bolswert, Paulus Pontius, Pieter de Jode and Jacob Neefs. The portraits in this lot include the rare portrait of Peter Paul Rubens, Lucas Vorsterman, Lucas van Uden, Pieter Stevens, Cornelis Schut, Cornelis Saftleven, Theodoor Galle, Theodoor Rombouts, Anthonis Corneliss, Frans Francken and the Duke of Arenberg.
