I'm sorry for not being very active in the forum. I hope everyone is well.

Portrait Of Cornelis Van Der Geest
By Anthony Van Dyck
Van Dyck was born in Antwerp. A precocious artist, his first independent works date from 1615-16, when he would have been about 17. Van Dyck was the most important Flemish painter of the 17th century after Rubens, whose works influenced the young Van Dyck. He also studied and was profoundly influenced by the work of Italian artists, above all, Titian.

Unfortunately I cannot see this type of attachment here, so I'll have to come back on my home PC or laptop. Anyway You chose a really great artist and both the portrait and the subjet he painted are most impressive!
I'm sure Your interpretation added Your personal art and got a wonderful artpiece out of it.

17 years old?!?!?!? Wow, they sure matured fast in the 17th century. . . Grey hair, beard. . . when I was 17, I could barely grow a moustache. . .

. . . no wait. . . you meant the painter was 17 years old. . . 17 years old?!?!?!? Wow, they sure matured fast in the 17th century. . .

It's astonishing to me this 17 year old's painting could be so masterful. At 17 I was still learning how to spell 'paint' let alone create such wonderful masterworks with it.

Dr Lima, your work here is fantastic. . . and masterful. I think it really illustrates what you were talking about with working forms and shadows with a certain amount of painterly daubs. The close ups are particularly useful to see the thinking that went into it.

Well done and thanks!
