Flemish and Dutch painting

Portrait of a judge

Antoon Van Dyck
Anvers, 1599 - Blackfriars, 1641

Around 1620, Oil on canvas, 117 x 98 cm

Usually a solid expertise in Realism is attributed to the Flemish school, therefore this splendid portrait of a magistrate could only come from Antoon van Dyck. Curiously, it was acquired by Edouard André under another name, and it was one of his competitors, the director of museums in Berlin, who published it under its actual attribution, which it has unanimously been recognised as ever since.
