Van Dyck, Vandyke

Van Dyck, Vandyke
   The seventeenth-century painter, whose name can be found variously spelled, was born Anton Van Dijck, but that spelling is almost never encountered outside his native Belgium. In America his name is usually rendered as Sir Anthony Vandyke, though Van Dyck (the spelling favored in Britain) is also sometimes found. In both countries, objects associated with him are spelled Vandyke-e.g., a Vandyke beard, a Vandyke collar.
