'Drunken Silenus supported by Satyrs' was possibly painted by Anthony van Dyck in about 1620. Silenus was the teacher and companion of Bacchus, the god of wine; he is often shown supported by satyrs because of his age and drunken condition. This painting hangs in Room 31: http://bit.ly/2d9VFXu
What catches your eye first when you see "Marchesa Elena Grimaldi Cattaneo"? A servant shields the resplendent marchesa with a parasol as she sweeps out onto the terrace of her palazzo, eyeing us watchfully. The marchesa’s exceptional and disproportionate height emphasizes her stature, literally and figuratively.
Does this remind you of any portraits we've looked at before?

'Charity' was painted by Anthony van Dyck in Antwerp soon after his return from Italy in 1627: http://bit.ly/1hoM680
The composition was engraved shortly afterwards which may have contributed to the work's popularity, evident from the numerous known copies and versions, including Sir Joshua Reynolds's 'Lady Cockburn and her Three Eldest Sons': http://bit.ly/1PlVPpS
