London – Portrait of Princess Mary (1631–1660), daughter of King Charles I of England, full-length, in a pink dress decorated with silver embroidery and ribbons by Sir Anthony van Dyck, 1641, will be offered from a Distinguished Private Collection in Christie’s Old Masters Evening Sale on 6 December, during Christie’s Classic Week (estimate: £5,000,000-8,000,000). Commissioned to celebrate the crucial alliance between the British crown and the House of Orange, this intimate ad vivum (from life) portrait of Princess Mary, the finest portrait of the type, is remarkable for its royal provenance, the superb quality of its draughtsmanship and its exceptional condition. It is one of the most important European Royal Portraits to come to auction for a generation. The painting will go on public view for the first time, ahead of the auction, at Christie’s Shanghai on 19 until 21 September, later touring to New York where it will be on public view from 25 to 30 October and to Hong Kong between 23 and 26 November, ahead of the pre-sale public exhibition in London from 1 to 6 December.John Stainton, Deputy Chairman, Old Master Paintings, Christie’s EMERI: “This beautifully-preserved full-length portrait of Princess Mary, eldest daughter of King Charles I of England, and future mother of King William III of England, was one of the last commissions executed by van Dyck, in the summer of 1641, only months before the artist’s premature death at the age of forty-two. It bears many of the hallmarks of his remarkable genius – in the subtle rendering of the sitter’s physiognomy, the masterful depiction of the shimmering drapery, the brilliance of the palette, and the assured draughtsmanship and deft handling of the paint. A work of the finest quality, it represents the culmination of all that van Dyck had learnt from his master, Peter Paul Rubens, and from his Venetian predecessors, notably Titian. By developing his own distinctive style of portraiture, characterised by a calm authority and supreme elegance, van Dyck both revolutionised portraiture in Europe and left a legacy for future generations of artists from Gainsborough and Lawrence, to Sargent and Freud.”

Van DyckTorino 16 novembre 2018 – 3 marzo 2019  Galleria Sabauda. Il 16 novembre 2018 a Torino apre al pubblico la straordinaria mostra dedicata a Antoon Van Dyck (1599-1641), il miglior allievo di Rubens, che rivoluzionò l’arte del ritratto del XVII secolo.
Personaggio di fama internazionale e amabile conversatore dallo stile ricercato, Van Dyck fu pittore ufficiale delle più grandi corti d’Europa ritraendo principi, regine, sir e nobildonne delle più prestigiose famiglie dell’epoca.
All’artista dotatissimo la Galleria Sabauda e Arthemisia dedicano una grande esposizione incentrata sulla sua vastissima produzione di ritratti e non solo: le oltre 100 opere esposte provengono da illustri musei e sono messe a confronto con quelle conservate proprio presso la Galleria Sabauda che ne possiede un importante e corposo nucleo.
