After VAN DYCK, Anthony

Icones Principum Virorum Doctorum, Pictorum Chalcographorum Statuariorum nec non Amatorum Pictoriae Artis numero centum.

Antwerp, Gillis Hendricx, 1645

Etchings and engravings, various states, sizes and papers, incl. doubles. Stuck by upper corners under passe-partout or on ff. (old traces on verso, some pl. fox. or brown., some (damp)stains, some traces of old sellotape, some corners defect., etc.).

Ca. 140 original prints from Van Dyck's series "Icones Principum Virorum". Mixed states. "Sir Anthony van Dyck stands out as the solitary great etcher of the school. Portrait etching had scarcely had an existence before his time, and in his work it suddenly appears at the highest point ever reached in the art" (Hind, p. 165). 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 Vostermans, Schelte Adamsz. Bolswert, Paulus Pontius and Jacob Neefs.
