This product of Van Dyck's workshop demonstates the quality of studio work executed by the painter''s most able assistants, and like the autograph work captures the haunting melancholy of the King's countenance. It is impossible not to view works like this, conventional enough at the time in their resonances, with the benefit of hindsight and hear them as ancentral voices prophesying war.
