Trained at the age of fourteen by Rubens, who soon called him his best student, Antoon van Dyck (1599-1641) eventually became the leading court painter of England under the name Anthony van Dyke. While, like his contemporaries, he painted Biblical and mythological subjects, he was most famous for his portraits of the aristocracy. Indeed, his outstanding draftsmanship and the exquisite relaxed elegance he imparted to his subjects made him the dominant influence in portraiture for the next 150 years.
