19th C, Neo-Baroque, Sculpture of a Lying Putto

The little statue is made by the Baroque sculptor François Duquesnoy, who worked for a long time in Italy, where sculptures from Antiquity influenced him. In fact, the idea of a putto personifying a river is indebted to ancient Roman art. This putto leans on a pitcher from which water flows and steers a rudder of a boat. The most famous putti made by Duquesnoy are undoubtedly those destined for the monumental canopy in Saint Peter's Church in Rome. A project that he carried out together with Gianlorenzo Bernini.

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.
