During the last decade of his career, 17th century painter Anthony van Dyck began working on a printmaking project that encompassed more than 100 portraits of famous figures of the era. The Art Institute bought a complete collection of the prints in 1927, but this show marks its first public exhibition, displayed alongside prints by other notable portrait artists, including Rembrandt and Chuck Close.
