The three oldest children of the English king Charles I. Oil on canvas, 157 x 148 cm. Doubled. Restoration. Min. damaged frame damaged and the three eldest children of Charles I, Prince Charles (1630-85, king Charles II) James, Duke of York (1633-1701, king James II.) - Princess Mary (1631-60, Princess Royal, later Princess of orange-Nassau) are Shown. In full figure before the column architecture with the velvet curtain, standing, flanked by two King Charles Spaniels. It is in the case of the present painting to a varying repetition after Anthony van Dyck's Original in the possession of the collections of the Queen of England (Windsor Castle). This was carried out 1635/36, after the artist had already shown a year earlier, the three children for the first Time. That painting (Turin, Galleria Sabauda) met with king Charles I., however, on criticism, as the heir to the throne, Prince Charles, was still portrayed in children's clothing instead of knee pants. Of the later version of the children's image of numerous repetitions has been made, but mostly in a smaller Format. In the present painting the unknown artist varies, possibly a workshop, a member of van Dyck's composition in an interesting way: It expands the Background in the upper area, thus captures more of the behind-catching, precious "Genoese Is". This has the result that the painting now appears in a similar Format and a very similar Proportion as the first, the king rejected, Turin, as amended (151 x 154 cm), almost as if one should be created a counterpart to this.
