    Born in Antwerp, Anthony van Dyck (1599-1641) was a precocious talent, rising swiftly to become a leading assistant to Rubens, then Northern Europe's most prominent painter. His importance to British art cannot be overstated: during the reign of Charles I he single-handedly reinvigorated portrait painting, leaving a legacy that would profoundly influence later generations. In this beautifully illustrated study, twelve leading art historians examine aspects of van Dyck's career in England and its impact on British cultural life.
