Résumé

Multidisciplinary research conducted into the oil paintings on oak panel by Anthony van Dyck (1599-1641) has revealed new findings about his life and oeuvre, his relationship with Rubens and Jordaens, Seventeenth Century panel makers and panel making. New archival research, re-examination of primary and secondary sources, dating the panels through dendrochronology, their visual examination and establishing patterns for Van Dyck’s use of panels and patronage of panel makers, has added substantially to the existing knowledge about the artist, particularly in his first and second Antwerp periods. It has also led to the discovery of previously unrecorded paintings on panel by Van Dyck. The conference highlights the major findings to date.
