          Sir William Killigrew was a courtier to Charles I, and later, a playwright. Van Dyck depicts him as a meditative scholar, his gaze withdrawn from the viewer. He leans pensively against the base of a column, and the viewer’s attention is drawn to a ring tied with a ribbon to his black satin jacket – perhaps in allusion to, or in memory of, a loved one.

          Sir Anthony van Dyck (1599–1641) was a Flemish Baroque artist who became the leading court painter in England, after enjoying great success in Italy and Flanders. He is most famous for his portraits, painted with a relaxed elegance that became the dominant influence on English portrait painting for the next 150 years.
