Analyzing the Painting of James Stuart Duke of Lennox and Richmond Student’s Name Institutional Affiliation Analyzing the Painting of James Stuart Duke of Lennox and Richmond The work art is called James Stuart Duke of Lennox and Richmond. The work was done between 1633 to 1640. The arts dimensions and size are 85 x 50 1/4 in. (215.9 x 127.6 cm). The medium used is oil and canvas. The artists is called Anthony Van Dyck. The work is categorized as a painting ("The Metropolitan Museum Of Art" 2017). I chose this piece of work because of the characters represented a man and his dog. I like dogs and that can explain why it caught my attention. Painting was done in 1633 a time in history The artwork is a sign of power and authority. The fact that it was made after the subject became the first Duke of Richmond implies that it was made to honor his authority. His posture conveys a high degree of dominance and power. There are probabilities that he had a pet dog thus making the painter to draw a dog beside him. 17th-century European leaders were from noble families and were highly respected and that could be a way of showing respect and honor by the painter Reference "James Stuart (1612–1655) Duke Of Richmond And Lennox | Anthony Van Dyck | 89.15.16 Work Of Art | Heilbrunn Timeline Of Art History | The Metropolitan Museum Of Art."
