Biography Anthony Van Dyck
A portrait and religious-subject painter and etcher from Belgium who spent much of his career in England, Anthony Van Dyck was born in Antwerp. His talent was recognized early, as he signed his first portrait in 1616 when he was seventeen years old. He became the favorite student and studio assistant to Peter Paul Rubens, and learned to imitate his style to the point that there was confusion as to which man painted some of the portraits.
When he was twenty-one, in 1620, Van Dyck first went to England to do court portraits, but was there for a short time because he never got the introduction he sought from King James I.
