      famous triple portrait of Charles I painted by Anthony van Dyck in 17th century

    • 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.

      Charles I in Three Positions, also known as the Triple portrait of Charles I, is an oil painting of Charles I of England by Flemish artist Sir Anthony Van Dyck, showing the King from three viewpoints: left full profile, face on, and right three quarter profile. The colours of the costumes and pattern of the lace collars are different in each portrait, however the blue riband of the Order of the Garter is present in all three. A copy (1750) is in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
