A year later he was the senior assistant to Rubens. A superb portraitist, Van Dyck became famous throughout Europe and later was appointed court painter to King James the First of England. Anthony Van Dyck was first introduced to both engraving and etching by Peter Paul Rubens. Around 1630 he began his most ambitious printmaking project to create a uniform series of engravings of famous contemporaries derived from his portraits. Anthony Van Dyck provided his engravers with extensive preparatory work, including drawings and oil sketches. He then corrected his engraver's proofs and even etched the outline features on some of the portraits. In the following years he designed and supervised about eighty such portrait engravings which were published individually by Martin van den Enden. His principal engravers included Paulus Pontius, Nicolaes Lauwers, Pieter de Jode, Lucas Vorsterman, Robert van Voerst and others.
