VAN DYCK, Anthony (after)

St Augustine in extasy.

18th c

Drawing, red chalk, heightened with white, 58,8 x 37,4 cm, laid paper, unsigned (some scratches, few sm. repaired tears on edges, traces of former mount on verso).

Large drawing after the altarpiece by Anthony van Dyck (1599-1641), painted ca. 1628 for the St Augustine's Church in Antwerp and now in the Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten Antwerpen (inv. IB003). The colour and dimensions of the drawing might have been inspired by Van Dyck's preparatory oil sketch now in New Haven (Yale University Art Gallery, inv. 1959.15.26). Augustine of Hippo at centre with an angel on either side. At left his mother St Monica and at right the Antwerp Augustinian friar Marinus Jansenius, who commissioned the painting. Above Augustine's vision of the Holy Trinity with putti in the clouds.
