Van Dyck exhibition in Munich

I spent few hours in the Gallery of old masters(Alte Pinakothek) yesterday, visiting the current exhibition showing works of Antonis van Dyck from its own collection as well international loans. I found this portrait of the engraver Karel van Mallery particularly expressive and I did this sketch.. I copied also Van Dyck`s self portrait painted when he was 16, loan from the Gemäldegalerie der Akademie der bildenden Künste, Vienna /Austria Sepia fineliners
