This pair of portraits was painted during Van Dyck’s second stay in Antwerp and is of the full-length, standing figure type that was introduced in painting in the sixteenth century—initially, however, being the preserve of the aristocracy. It became increasingly used for portraits of non-aristocratic patricians, whose lifestyle was orien-tated on that of the nobility. Through his lively, realistic rendition of the figures portrayed, Van Dyck managed to introduce new facets into this established style of portraiture.
