Van Dyck's Portrait of Cornelis Van der Geest

This is a portrait of Cornelis Van der Geest by Anthony Van Dyck. Its one of my favorite portraits. I will attempt to copy this portrait since it will be the subject of a class I plan to teach. (Classical painting techniques on Portraits.) The course will cover the technique used by Van Dyck, the background and start to finish process. The size of the copy will be as close as the original painting about 13in x 15in.
