These are the revised papers delivered at the Antwerp Van Dyck colloquium, 1999, dealing with aspects of biographical evidence, technique, style and iconography within the wider framework of Van Dyck´s life and work.

The Van Dyck year 1999 and the various exhibitions organized in Antwerp on that particular occasion enabled both the Wetenschappelijk Onderzoeksgemeenschap Vlaamse Renaissance- en Barokkunst and the Rubenianum to organize an international colloquium in the painter´s birthplace, from 17 to 19 May, 1999. The main aim of this event was to get a clearer picture of the actual state of research on the various aspects of an artistic personality that is fascinating in so many ways. It was a great pleasure to find so many scholars prepared to present their conclusions and ideas in the form of specific case studies. They discussed aspects of biographical evidence, technique, style and iconography within the wider framework of the painter´s life and work. They also shed new light on Van Dyck´s personality, influence and fame. The here published acts of the Antwerp Van Dyck colloquium contain the revised and updated texts of twenty lectures.

Review

"Auch in formaler Hinsicht hat Hans Vlieghe den Band mit der im Umkreis des Antwerpener Rubenianums üblichen Sorgfalt herausgegeben. Brepols Publishers, der in Publikationen zur flämischen Kunst seit Jahren Massstäbe setzende Verlag, hat das seine dazugetan, ein in Lay-out und Abbildungsqualität Forschung zur flämischen Kunst sicher sein dürfte." (U. Heinen in Sehepunkte, 3 (2003), nr. 1, 15.01.2003)
