1 Blake, Robin Anthony Van Dyck A Life 1599-1641
London Constable & Company Ltd. 1999 009479720X / 9780094797208 First Edition Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Cover is dark blue with silver lettering on spine. Blue endpapes. Pages are clean and tight; this is a NEW book. Illustrated with 62 b/w photographs. "This new biography re-evaluates the man not only as a remarkably individual portratist, but as a fully rounded Baroque artist of memorable power...an engrossing account of the public and private life of an unusually driven genius [who started as an apprentice to Sir Peter Paul Reubens]...keeping up a punishing work-rate. He knew most of the great men and women of his day, but his story is also enlivened by glimpses of lesser figures..." Van Dyck was a man who defined himself almost entirely through his work...." For anyone who is a fan of Van Dyck, as am I, this is a must have title for your collection--I've got a copy for myself. An artist whose lifetime output was enormous, varied, influential and, at its best, mesmerizing and magnetic. ; B&W Photographs; 6 1/4 x 9 1/2; xii, 433 pages; DJ has slight rubbing/shelfwear; in a mylar cover.
