    18th century oil portrait of king charles 1st after van dyck's triptych three headed version & later cut down

    A good oil portrait on canvas depicting the famous KING CHARLES 1st,After VAN DYCK'S original version painted as a three headed triptych example.

     
    The portrait offered has been carefully cut down to show only the right hand side view of King Charles head and shoulders,with the central head only part retained,as if to imply he is now reflected in a mirror.
     
    CONDITION
     
    The portrait has signs of a very old relining,which has held good to this day and requires no further attention.
     
    UNDER RESTORATION
     
    The portrait is presently undergoing a full professional clean and revarnish,which will greatly enhance the detail,clarity and sharpen the rich colours back to their near original colours.
     
    FRAME
     
    A later frame dating around 1800 had been fitted around the portrait,and is also undergoing some slight refurbishment and regilding,so as to make perfect in appearance.
     
    The original, painted in 1635, was sent to Rome in order that the noted sculptor Bernini had an accurate image from which to sculpt a marble bust of the monarch.
     
    The painting now belongs to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll.
     
    The bust was destroyed in the fire which severely damaged Whitehall Palace in 1698
     
    ABOUT THE ARTIST
     
    Sir Anthony van Dyck (Dutch pronunciation: [v?n 'd????k], many variant spellings;[1] 22 March 1599 – 9 December 1641) was a Flemish Baroque artist who became the leading court painter in England. He is most famous for his portraits of Charles I of England and his family and court, painted with a relaxed elegance that was to be the dominant influence on English portrait-painting for the next 150 years.
     
    Antoon van Dyck (his Flemish name) was born to prosperous parents in Antwerp. His talent was evident very early, and he was studying painting with Hendrick van Balen by 1609, and became an independent painter around 1615, setting up a workshop with his even younger friend Jan Brueghel the Younger.[2] By the age of fifteen he was already a highly accomplished artist, as his Self-portrait.
