Description

Fine, rare and characterful seventeenth-century oil on panel portrait of Charles I by ‘Old Stone’ / Henry Stone 1616-1653. The monarch is depicted bust length wearing a lace collar and his robes of state. Charles I is known to have commissioned copies by Stone, his court artist, of portraits by Van Dyck and other European artists, as presents for members of the nobility.
Henry Stone (1616 – 24 Aug 1653)
Henry Stone known as ‘Old Stone’ was the eldest son of notable sculptor and architect Nicholas Stone (1586/7-1647); his brothers Nicholas Stone Jr. (1618–1647) and John Stone (1620–67) were sculptors and masons. Henry went to Holland where he was apprenticed to his uncle, the painter Thomas de Keyser. He later went on a tour of the continent with his brother Nicholas Jr. visiting France, and Italy to study art, where he visited the studio of Bernini, and he returned in 1642. After his father's death he and his youngest brother John carried on their father's business of masonry and statuary.
Stone was, however, chiefly known as a portrait painter, and was an excellent copyist of the works of Van Dyck and the Italian Masters. He also published a short work on painting, called "The Third Part of the Art of Painting".
