      English: Anthony van Dyck, Charles I's court painter, created the famous "Charles I, King of England, from Three Angles," commonly known as the "Triple Portrait." The oil painting was made on canvas around 1636, and is an example of how Van Dyck tended to mask Charles I's small stature, portraying him in a more dignified manner.

      Though he had been the King of Scotland since 1625, it was on this day in British history, 18 June 1633, that King Charles I was crowned King of Scotland in a ceremony at Edinburgh. The portrait below was painted by Charles I's court painter, Anthony van Dyck, and is called "Charles I, King of England, from Three Angles."

      Anthony van Dyck, Triple Portrait of Charles I, 1635. In this portrait of King Charles I of Great Britain. Van Dyck depicts the king from three different angles; this shows off van Dyck’s ability to render a face in various poses. This painting was sent to the virtuoso sculptor Bernini, who was commissioned to create a bust of the king: the sculptor needed to know what Charles looked like from various angles.

    • Barbara Andrews

      In 1636, Anthony Van Dyck, the British royal family’s court painter, created not one but three portraits of his patron Charles I combined in one work of art. Why? Charles I, King of England from Three Angles was done by Van Dyck as a study intended for use by the great Italian Baroque sculptor Bernini, who had just been commissioned to create a bust of the monarch. However, some fifteen years later, King Charles would be beheaded in the English Civil War, losing his elegant head forever.

      Instagram media paintguide - Anthony Van Dyck, 'Charles I in Three Positions' The intent of this painting was to be used as reference work for Italian sculptor, Bernini, to create a marble bust of King Charles I. The 'triple headed portrait' had and has been used by a handful of painters throughout art history. Van Dyck is one of my favorite painters. I love the approach in his likenesses, and especially appreciate how he draws and suggests personal style in his paintings with hands and fabric.
