Description of the artwork «Portrait of Lady Timbleby and Viscountess Andover»

Portrait of Lady Elizabeth Timbleby and Viscountess Dorothea Andover
75x66 cm. Canvas. Oil. Copy from a painting by Antonis van Dyck The artist painted this portrait during his stay in England as a courtier of King Charles I. It is a ceremonial portrait of Lady Elizabeth Timbleby and Dorothy Viscountess of Andover. It captures the two sisters on the eve of Dorothy's wedding. In the hands of the bride is a basket of roses, an attribute of her sainthood, the patron saint of brides. With great skill, the artist conveys the brilliance of the beauties' satin gowns and finely paints their artfully curled hair and jewelry, which shades the charm of their faces. This picture is made by using the techniques of the old masters (multilayer painting, glaze and so on). The texture of fabrics and the transfer of the smallest details can be seen very impressively.
