Portraiture, Painting, Oil on canvas, 64.5x53.2 cm
Origin: Flanders, 1632-1633s

Inigo Jones was a renowned architect who was known as the English Vitruvius. He was the author of the architectural plans for the Queens House palace in Greenwich and the banquet hall of the Whitehall Palace in London, where the ceiling was painted by Peter Paul Rubens. Jones was also a splendid painter and theatre artist. It is likely that the Portrait of Inigo Jones was prepared within the context of Van Dyck's Iconography and that it was completed in the first half of the 1630s. This dating corresponds to the style of execution and to the colour range of the painting, which is typical of Van Dyck's works from the "second Antwerp period".
