Philip, Lord Wharton  1632

by Anthony van Dyck

Medium: [br]Oil on canvas Dimensions: Overall 133 x 106 cm (52 3/8 x 41 3/4 in.) This portrait depicts the Baron, Philip Wharton. Van Dyck's talent for depicting fabrics is evident here (as it is in many of his portraits); he has skilfully recreated the visual texture of the Baron's velvet tunic, his lace collar, and his satin-like cape.
