17th C English School, After the hunt scenery, oil

COLLECTIT! by SPECTANDUM
This British painting depicts the moment after the hunt. In the 17th C, hunting scenes were a popular genre. Many British country houses possess paintings depicting hunting scenes. The game of the hunt is displayed on the ground and hanging from the branch of a tree. The hunting dog, a Blenheim Spaniel, which is a variety of the King Charles Spaniel, looks melancholically at the viewer. At the left some hunting paraphernalia are shown. We see an elegant blue shot pouch and the carrying strap of a hunters’ bag. There are two main types of ‘after-the-hunt’ scenes. The most common type shows the game displayed in an interior, either on the floor, on tables, or suspended from hooks. There are often dogs and hunters posing with their spoils. In this, less common, case the game is displayed somewhere in a wooded landscape.

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.
