18th C, Willem Muys (1720-1763), Rebekka & Eliëzer

COLLECTIT! by SPECTANDUM
Rotterdam-born painter Willem Muys (1720-1763) specialised in wallpaper paintings. Little is known about his work, as not many paintings can be attributed to him. His children Cornelia, Robbert and Nicolaes were trained by him and have all made a career as artists. In the story of Rebecca (Gen. 24: 46-67) the servant Eliezer is sent by Abraham to Mesopotamia where he has to find a wife for his son Isaac. In a prayer, Eliezer asks how he would be able to recognize the most suitable bride. It is revealed to him that the woman who offers water, not only to him but also to his camels will be the chosen bride. Rebecca appears at the well and offers him water to quench their thirst. She does not forget the camels. On seeing this Eliezer gives her jewels and obtains the permission of her brother and mother to accompany him to Canaan to be married to Isaac.

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.
