Exhibition Van Dyck the Engraver
from February 7, 2008 to May 5, 2008
Art of the Portrait
The Cabinet des Dessins, the Chalcography and the Edmond de Rothschild Collection at the Musée du Louvre bring together an exceptional grouping of works forming one of the finest series of engraved portraits by a painter: the Iconography of Antoine van Dyck.
Inviting the public to discover first-state etchings as well as a number of preparatory drawings and copper plates used to create the Iconography, this exhibition offers an unprecedented view into the genesis and development of this singular series.
Organized by: Pascal Torres, curator of the Edmond de Rothschild Collection and of the Chalcography at the Musée du Louvre.
