This print is one of the fifteen etched by Van Dyck himself. The set of fifteen were not included in the first publication. They have little to no background and seem unfinished when compared to the engraved plates. It has been suggested that Van Dyck planned to etch the face and the basic shape of the composition then pass the plate to an engraver to add detail in the same way that a painted portrait was produced in a workshop. However, only a few plates were embellished with the burin leaving Van Dyck’s etchings untouched. An inventory of Rembrandt’s paper collection included a book of portrait prints by Van Dyck; it is highly likely that he owned a few of Van Dyck’s pure etchings.

Van Noort married the daughter of a wealthy merchant and became a member of Antwerp’s high society. A successful historical painter, Van Noort’s pupils included Peter Paul Rubens and Jacob Jordaens.
