Van Dyck's Portrait of Cardinal Bentivoglio

Van Dyck’s portrait of Cardinal Bentivoglio has left Italy, travelling to the U.S. for the first time, where it is on view at the Frick in the Van Dyck: The Anatomy of Portraiture (March 2 through June 5, 2016). This great work is discussed by Xavier F. Salomon, who considers it among the most important loans to the exhibition (and his favorite work in the show).
