The canon of Antwerp Cathedral, holding his biretta and prayer book in his left hand, is depicted with exemplary economy of colour. His sombre clothes subtly blend with the background, his cuffs and collar delicately highlighted in white. When compared to his other works in this room the painting demonstrates the diversity of Van Dyck’s style.
