"Uaby Stuart" . . . apple and all ing £0 wise and BY ALICE ROUE Written for NBA Sen-ice One sunny afternoon three hundred years ago three small children were playing with a spaniel in the palace at Westminslcr. Thc romper-clad child of today would never have guessed from their long heavy silk petticoals Hint two of them were boys. The litllest one wore a lace cop, lik^ his five-year- old brother. His three-year-old sister was a miniature court. lady. The baby's .chubby hand, outstretched from the puffed sleeve of his rich, blue silk gown, was jusl about to, irdch the spaniel's ear when their | -,.

He loved elegance, a characteristic reflected In his work especially hi the patrician quality he gives to hit subjects, the fine texture of thc flesh, thc detailed perfection ot UK costumes, the richness of thc materials. And he knew how to embellish everything he touched. Perhaps this was why King Charles 1 knighted him. He painted thirty-one portraits of lt:e king before that monarch was beheaded and England "went Puritan" under Oliver Cromirell for eleven years. Van Dyck, who was born in Antwerp, died In 1611 at " ; age of -12, so he never knew the :e of his royal patron and chil- . Became And thc littlest one did. .At two years the stubbornness which was later to cost him his crown as James th? Second of England cropped out.. "No!" he cried, hanging on lo the spaniel. -No!"

Tr.erc he is today, apple and nil, a charming litib figure looking so vise and self-controlled. Artists marvel at the natural, easy pose ot Ihls two-year-oM, as well as that of his sister and brother. For thc celebrated "Baby Stuart" is a detail of a large group of (he three children.

One of his acts which has a modern flavor was to renounce the throne to marry a commoner Anne Hyde, daughter of Lore Chancellor Clarendon.
