CIRCLE OF SIR ANTHONY VAN DYCK (ANTWERP 1599 - LONDON 1641)
A Knight on horseback
oil on oak panel
circa 1630
27 x 21 cm (10 1/2 x 8 1/4 in.)

PROVENANCE:
Baron Courtauld Thomson, London

EXHIBITION:
Exposition de l'Art Belge au XVIIe Siècle, Brussels, 1910, no. 160 as : 'Cavalier (esquisse). - Bois, h. 27, l. 21 cm. M. Courtauld-Thomson-Esq, Londres.'

The present work was probably painted around 1630. This type of sketch, derived from similar studies by Rubens, would have been used in Van Dyck’s studio as models for his equestrian portrait commissions. Two small sketches identical in size and subject exist, one in the Metropolitan Museum, New York (Fig. 1) and another which appeared at auction at Accademia Fine Art, Monaco on 5th April 2014 (Fig.2). A dendrochronological analysis report dates the panel to 1596.
