Anthony van Dyck. Charles I, King of England, from Three Angles.

After Bernini. Charles I, King of England. 1636. Windsor Castle, Royal Collection, UK.

This portrait of Charles I was painted by Van Dyck for the Italian sculptor Bernini, who was commissioned by Papa Urban VIII to make the bust of Charles I. The bust was indeed created by Bernini in 1636 and was greatly admired by the King. Unfortunately the sculpture was lost in the fire in the Whitehall Palace in 1698. See the copy of it
