Catalogue Note

A copy after Van Dyck's lost 1630 portrait of Anna Maria de Çamudio.1 The original was last recorded, until after 1900, in the collection of the descendants of the Duke Prosper d'Arenberg in Brussels. Anna Maria was a member of a prominent Basque family, and came to Brussels as a lady-in-waiting to Archduchess Isabella. She married Ferdinand de Bosschot in 1607, whose portrait Van Dyck painted to serve as a pendant to the portrait of Anna Maria.2
