17th C, Baroque, Forest landscape with waterfall

A stream with waterfalls finds its way through a rocky forest landscape. Such more rugged landscapes focusing on the power of nature were very successful in the Netherlands during the second half of the 17th century. People were fascinated by the beauty of the unpredictability and changeability of Mother Nature. Two painters who were very successful in this type of landscape were Jacob Isaacsz van Ruisdael and Allart van Everdingen. The former is best known for its stormy skies. His landscapes are not a direct registration of reality but dramatically composed views. The latter exerted a great influence on van Ruisdael with his Scandinavian landscapes. After a stay in Norway and Sweden, he brought impressive canvases with rocky and mountainous views and powerful waterfalls to the Netherlands. The proposed canvas is strongly in line with both artists from the Dutch Republic. He is just a little less skilled in advanced lighting control. He brings less nuance to his lighting effect and works more sparingly with light accents than van Ruisdael and van Everdingen.

For COLLECTIT! by SPECTANDUM owner Guy Kuypers, the history of his collecting began at the Porte de Clignancourt in Paris with a Napoleon III case filled with Exotic Birds. The colorful birds piqued my imagination and became the beginning of a passion for Natural History, Ethnography, European Works of Art, Antiquities and Curiosities that drive me on all continents, looking for fascinating and rare objects. Whether they are natural or man-made, all have an interesting story to tell.

So, it is finally in this spirit that the collection, which encompasses Natural History, Tribal Art, Paintings, Sculptures and Curiosities from many cultures and periods in history finds its rationale and its roots.
