Kehinde Wiley is one of the most celebrated artist’s working today. The Timken is proud to share his dazzling painting Equestrian Portrait of Prince Tommaso of Savoy-Carignan (2018) for the first time with the public in San Diego. Wiley employs “street-casting” to identify youthful, contemporary models for his large-scale works, posing them in the manner of famous “Grand Manner” European portraits. In the case of Wiley’s recent image from his Rumours of War series , both horse and model replicate Anthony van Dyck’s Baroque portrait of Prince Tommaso Francesco of Savoy-Carignan (1634), which is today at the Galleria Saubada, Turin. While on loan to the Timken from a prominent New York collection, The painting will hang in the Dutch-Flemish Gallery, next to van Dyck’s portrait of Mary Villers, Lady Herbert of Shurland which was painted about the same time as the work that served as Wiley’s model.
