Painting Information

The Horses of Achilles
Style of Anthony van DYCK , 1599 - 1641

Date: 1635-45
Medium: Oil on canvas
Acquisition credit: Bequeathed by Lord Farnborough, 1838 Achilles, the Greek hero, had two horses, Xanthus and Balius, which were the offspring of Zephyrus, a wind god. Homer 'Iliad', XVI, 146. The wind god, top right, is probably intended as a personification of Zephyrus. Painted in Van Dyck's style of the 1620s, and perhaps executed in the second half of the 17th century or in the early 18th century, this picture is proof that Van Dyck's sketches were sought after and imitated at an early date.
