This is probably a self-portrait of the painter Barbier. It is a very abstract version of the head which is largely distorted. The artist defines the contours of the face with light blue brushstrokes and with narrow brushstrokes in orange he paints the chin, mouth, nose, right eye and the eyebrows. The left eye and eyebrow are defined with a thick coat of green paint. a strip of brown hair is painted on both sides, though the ears are not visible. The self-portrait is framed by four separate squares painted by a lose hand. One is red, one light green, one dark green and the smallest one is in turquoise. There is a fifth line framing the outer edge of the canvas and it has a dark purple, eggplant color.

For VINTAGERIOUS 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.
