19th C English School, portrait of a gentleman

COLLECTIT! by SPECTANDUM
This lovely portrait of a very fine young gentleman depicts the time period very well. These types of portraits were very popular during the 19th century and many artists specialized in this kind of painting. The artist clearly had a feeling for detail and subtlety. The young man is smiling ever so lightly and his gaze is soft and friendly. The man must be quite young, because in the 19th century, most men wore their hair short and wavy, but it was almost always accompanied by various forms of facial hair including moustaches, side-burns, and full beards.

English school, dominant school of painting in England throughout the second half of the 18th century and the first half of the 19th. Its establishment marked the rise of a national tradition that began with the emergence of native artists whose works were no longer provincial but rivaled continental art in quality and ended by exercising considerable influence on the course of European painting.

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.
