Example text

Working in England (with some absences abroad) for eleven years until his death in 1641, married to an English woman, Mary, daughter of Sir Patrick Ruthven, living in state at a house at Blackfriars, knighted and honoured by the King, Van Dyck has an English existence in which he seems far removed from the Flemish master who painted opulent religious compositions at Antwerp. He gives the impression of reacting sensitively to his environment, of taking on something of the-poetic attitude which existed subtly in the English atmosphere.

The influence of Van Dyck was passed on to Hoskins's pupilassistant. Cooper was able, however, to apply a delicate sense of detail and a strong feeling for character in a thoroughly original way. Flourishing before, during, and after civil strife he gave as remarkable and extensive a record of his time as any. He has left brilliant portraits alike of Cromwell and Charles II, concentrating dramatically on the features as in the unfinished sketch on vellum of Oliver Cromwell in the collection of the Duke of Buccleuch.

The pose of John Plampin of Chadacre (///. 72) reclining by a tree, with one of those dogs Gainsborough always painted so well, is very similar to that of Hayman's Garrkk and Wyndham. How far the genius of Gainsborough transcended such models is, however, shown by the superb Mr and Mrs Kobert Andrews {111. jf), so sentient in every respect of English country and English life. The taste of the time for Dutch pictures and the affinity between Holland and East Anglia give an indication of his starting-point in landscape.
