During the decade he spent in London, Anthony van Dyck became famous for his spectacular portrait sittings, which combined painting with music and food to produce an elaborate entertainment for his clientele. This lecture, presented by the co-curator of Van Dyck: The Anatomy of Portraiture explores Van Dyck’s public persona and his legacy for seventeenth-century English poetry and drama, paying special attention to works included in the exhibition.
