Long active in England, the great Flemish painter Van Dyck had established the country’s taste and high standard for portraits. In the 1730s the costumes of his period returned to fashion. Van Dyck’s portraits would remain the most frequent subject of mezzotint apart from contemporary English works. Clear in this superb impression, the technique was perfectly suited to reproducing their splendid materials and lustrous surfaces.
