Description

Archduke Ferdinand of Austria
ca. 1630
Engraving
14 7/8 X 11 1/8" SHEET
This engraving of Archduke Ferdinand of Austria, is part of van Dyck's Iconography, a collection of portrait prints made after drawings and paintings by van Dyck. Eighteen were etched by the artist himself, although the majority are engravings made by a variety of printmakers. This group of portraits of princes, politicians, soldiers, statesmen, scholars, art connoisseurs and most importantly artists represents a survey of the most distinguished men and women of his time. The edition published by Martinus van den Enden during van Dyck's lifetime consisted of eighty portraits. Van Dyck prepared these prints by making oil sketches and drawings in black chalk, sometimes washed with brown ink. In this case, the print is engraved by Adrian Lommelin as indicated below image, at left-right: ADRIAN LOMMELIN SCULPSIT.
