Anthonis van Dyck (Anthonis van Dyck) (1599 Antwerp - 1641 London) Artist's studio.
Portrait of Margaret Lemon. A girl with a pearl necklace and flowers in her hair is depicted up to the breast.
Unfolded in profile, it is turned towards the viewer in three quarters and with thin fingers seems to indicate a heart. With a necklace and flowers she forms a symbolic chain of perishable beauty, purity and a soul aware of its finitude. This interrogative tension is present in the gaze. A mysterious and vacillating background, the nature of matter being of nature - raising the subject to the sacred secrets of being: this is eternity and the relevance of great art.
The painting depicts Van Dyck's mistress, whom he met after moving to London in 1632. Van Dyck is a court painter, a respected portrait painter of King Charles I. The artist painted several portraits of Margret Lemon, with slight differences . This work has long been in a private collection.
