The Rysbrack Statuettes of Rubens, van Dyck and du Quesnoy, Part 5, Sources Rubens.

The Engraved Portraits of Peter Paul Rubens, Prior to 1743.

As a collector, some or perhaps all of these engravings would have been available to Rysbrack.

Rysbrack was a prolific collector of engravings, see Rysbrack sale, Langfords of The Piazza Covent Garden, 15, 17 and 18th February, 1764, lot 60; Lot 24 and 25; lots 9, 10 and 11, heads by van Dyck.

The collection of engravings below is by no means exhaustive - others not included are variations of these
