A MASTERPIECE BY SIR ANTHONY VAN DYCK
Portrait of Princess Mary, daughter of King Charles I of England

 

*One of the most important European Royal Portraits to come to auction for a generation*

*Commissioned to celebrate the crucial alliance between the British crown & the House of Orange*

Christie’s London, 6 December

‘In the portraits commissioned by the King and Queen,
Van Dyck produced a series of masterpieces unsurpassed in the history of the European royal portrait’ (Sir Oliver Millar)

Portrait of Princess Mary (1631–1660), daughter of King Charles I of England, full-length, in a pink dress decorated with silver embroidery and ribbons by Sir Anthony van Dyck, 1641, will be offered from a Distinguished Private Collection in Christie’s Old Masters Evening Sale on 6 December, during Christie’s Classic Week (estimate: £5,000,000-8,000,000). Commissioned to celebrate the crucial alliance between the British crown and the House of Orange, this intimate ad vivum (from life) portrait of Princess Mary, the finest portrait of the type, is remarkable for its royal provenance, the superb quality of its draughtsmanship and its exceptional condition. It is one of the most important European Royal Portraits to come to auction for a generation. The painting will go on public view for the first time, ahead of the auction, at Christie’s Shanghai on 19 until 21 September, later touring to New York where it will be on public view from 25 to 30 October and to Hong Kong between 23 and 26 November, ahead of the pre-sale public exhibition in London from 1 to 6 December.

John Stainton, Deputy Chairman, Old Master Paintings, Christie’s EMERI: “This beautifully-preserved full-length portrait of Princess Mary, eldest daughter of King Charles I of England, and future mother of King William III of England, was one of the last commissions executed by van Dyck, in the summer of 1641, only months before the artist’s premature death at the age of forty-two. It bears many of the hallmarks of his remarkable genius – in the subtle rendering of the sitter’s physiognomy, the masterful depiction of the shimmering drapery, the brilliance of the palette, and the assured draughtsmanship and deft handling of the paint. A work of the finest quality, it represents the culmination of all that van Dyck had learnt from his master, Peter Paul Rubens, and from his Venetian predecessors, notably Titian. By developing his own distinctive style of portraiture, characterised by a calm authority and supreme elegance, van Dyck both revolutionised portraiture in Europe and left a legacy for future generations of artists from Gainsborough and Lawrence, to Sargent and Freud.”

Florence Palazzo Spini Feroni

Piazza Santa Trinità,5r

Florence

Hollywoods rich history was founded by Italian talent. The exhibition Italy in Hollywood showcases the presence and importance of Italian immigrants in the development of California in the early 20th century. From architecture, art, film, and finance Italian immigrants left an indelible mark in California. Salvatore Ferragamo was one of the first and most celebrated new arrivals. Ferragamo designed and dressed countless Hollywood stars and gave an Italian accent to the definition of Hollywood glamour. These fervent times played host to the rise of Italian icons such as Enrico Caruso, Lina Cavalieri, Tina Modotti and Rudolph Valentino. Italians have a major role in Hollywood with cinematic milestones such as Cabiria, Ramola and Ben Hur. The Italy in Hollywood exhibition at the historic Palazzo Spini Feroni beautifully tells a complex story of the courage, commitment and success of Italians in California.
