I mentioned last month two enticing look head studies by Van Dyck coming up for sale in New York. Well, they just sold, and I thought for quite a reasonable price, given that both have recently been exhibited in stellar company in the 'Young Van Dyck' exhibition at the Prado.

The study above made $298,000, while the Boy with Clasped Hands made $274,000 (both prices inc. premium). Slightly to my surprise, a grisaille catalogued as 'attributed to Van Dyck', which was missing part of the panel from the right hand side, sold well, fetching $478,000.
