After Sir Anthony van Dyck
Portrait of Algernon Percy, 10th Earl of Northumberland (1602-1668), his First Wife Lady Anne Cecil (d.1637), and their Daughter, Lady Catherine Percy (1630-1638)
oil on canvas
52 x 70 7/8 in. (132 x 180 cm.)
After the picture of circa 1635 at Petworth House, West Sussex commissioned by the 10th Earl of Northumberland between 1635-36. The 10th Earl was one of Van Dyck's three main aristocratic patrons in the mid-17th century, this picture is particularly evocative, especially with the presence of Lady Catherine Percy who died aged eight, only a few years later.
