William Dobson

Dobson, William, 1610–46, English court painter. After the death of Van Dyck, Dobson was made court painter to Charles I and did some interesting court portraits. Some of his works are close to the Venetian High Renaissance style and have allegorical implications. His Endymion Porter (National Gall., London) is a strong and characteristic portrait.
