25.1 x 17.5 cm
c. 1641 Sir Anthony van Dyck
What I especially love about this van Dyck engraving – one of my favourites – is that the subject, Cornelius, is so august-souled. His look is so kaleidoscopic thereby betraying his reincarnational history. To look at the subject, he could be Tatar, Nepalese, even Inuit… all the lives that he’s lived to date are magically alluded to. Masterful. Stunning. I love it.
