Historical Description

A wonderfully detailed and charismatic portrait, this exquisite work illustrates the technical mastery and artistic vision of Van Dyck. Jacobus de Cachopin's stately yet approachable expression reflects Van Dyck's refined ability to comfort and relax his subjects, resulting in a realistic and acute portrait. As a great lover of the art of Antwerp, Jacobus de Cachopin was appropriately included in Van Dyck's series. He appears with an earnest expression upon his face, with thin lips, pointed nose, and kind eyes. He poses gallantly with his left hand reaching slightly outside the frame, as if he is claiming his own portrait as a work of art for his collection.

This portrait is a Mauquoy-Hendrickx State VI (of VI) from the Giles Hendrickx edition, engraved by Lucas Vorsterman (Zaltbommel, 1595 - Antwerp, 1675) in collaboration with Anthony van Dyck (Antwerp, 1559 - London, 1641) as part of his Iconographie series of engraved portraits of famous people at the time. The plate has been marked in the lower left of the plate "Ant. van Dyck pinxcit," and beneath that "Vorsterman fculp" and in the lower right of the plate "Cum privilegio." Beneath the engraved portrait is the inscription: JACOBUS DE CAHOPIN | AMATOR ARTIS PICTORI? ANTVERPI?. This piece is printed on a fine paper with the Foolscap with Five Pointed Collar watermark (Mauquoy-Hendrickx no. 73) dating the piece to c. 1645-1650.
