MASTERPIECES IN FOCUS FROM THE ROYAL COLLECTION: VAN DYCK, CHARLES I

Until 29 July, 10am (Free)
Ferens Art Gallery

In a partnership with the Royal Collection Trust, Van Dyck’ Charles I is one of five collections of Art heading Ferens Art Gallery.

Van Dyck’s triple portrait of Charles I, begun in 1635 and finished by June 1636, portraying the King from three viewpoints, each with a differently patterned lace collar and coloured clothing.

The unusual format chosen for the portrait was due to its proposed use as a reference work for the Italian sculptor Lorenzo Bernini to create a marble bust of Charles I.
