Van Dyck, Rembrandt, and the Portrait Print

Published May 16, 2016

In the last decade of his life, acclaimed painter Anthony van Dyck began a printmaking project that would change the conventions of portraiture called the Iconography. Presenting several etchings from the Iconography, on view for the first time in nearly 90 years, together with works by various artists from the 16th through the 20th century, this exhibition examines Van Dyck's lasting influence on the evolution of the portrait print and its significance as a distinct genre.

The exhibition runs from May 1 - August 7, 2016 at the Art Institute of Chicago located on 111 South Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL.
