Style of Anthony van Dyck: 'Portraits of Two Young Englishmen'

Explore the paintings

The traditional identification of the sitters, Lords John and Bernard Stuart, as sons of Esmé Stuart, 3rd Duke of Lennox, made from the inscription, is incorrect. The original Van Dyck double portrait of the brothers 'Lord John and Bernard Stuart' is also in the Collection, and is perhaps the model for this work.

This work is painted in a manner reminiscent of Van Dyck's style in the late 1630s.
