FIT FOR A KING
the Ultimate 'Spin Doctor'
by Jacqui Ansell
Had Henry not died in 1612, Charles I would never have been King. Had Van Dyck not arrived at Stuart Court with the stiff body language of Jacobean portraiture may never have been enlivened by the introduction of Renaissance values, giving rise to the splendor of Baroque. Van Dyck transformed the awkward and ungainly Charles to his depiction of sumptuous satins and shimmering silks, he was hailed as a careless romantic.
