The Ecstasy of St. Augustine

Anthony van Dyck

Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp

Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp

Van Dyck made this sketch in underpainting for a large altarpiece in the Church of St. Augustine. The artist delivered the canvas in 1628. This work is on long-term loan in the Antwerp Royal Museum of Fine Arts. Brown sketching and a little, summary, nervous white highlighting are sufficient to suggest the relief of the composition.
