Stéphanie Busuttil & Sébastien Janssen show AD Their Impressive Collection

Stéphanie Busuttil and her husband, Sébastien Janssen, have something of a collecting habit. “We adore attending auctions and hunting for things wherever we travel,” she declares. “Within the decorative arts, we more or less like everything.” That “everything” stretches from silverware and crockery to rugs and furniture.

They are equally passionate about fine art.

Perhaps if Stéphanie Busuttil & Sébastien Janssen walked me through their house explaining the art collection I could arrive at being impressed.

But for now, I am an ignorant savage attempting to figure out the impressive aspect of a red squiggly. (Naturally, I apologize if any ignorant savages were offended by this statement. If such an ignorant savage will contact me I will show them a magic cigarette lighter to make atonement for such an insensitive comment.)

  • Architecturally, it was a mishmash of styles, and the couple oversaw the renovation and decoration themselves. The staircase and entry have neoclassical details, both of which were kept. But an “ugly” panoramic fresco in the dining room was painted over, and the quintessentially French elements in the living room—wainscoting and a cornice ornately sculpted with musical instruments—were discarded. [ see reference article ]

Being ignorant is not a sin per-se, we all are born ignorant. It is remaining ignorant that is a crime before God.

The All Mighty God gave us a brain and it is but one aspect where we learn to love God and appreciate His artwork.

So educate away Lord… I am humble and eager to learn.

In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver but also of wood and clay; some are for noble purposes and some for ignoble. If a man cleanses himself from the latter, he will be an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work. (2 Timothy 2:20-21)

The lesson in all of this is if you want to walk with God if you desire to become holy, if you hunger and thirst for righteousness, if you desire truth in all situations, your gonna have to be taught the value of God’s artwork. You will have to be given a tour of God’s large house and be taught the value, or lack of value of the articles within. Just like when mommy used to tell you “no-no, do not touch”, or, “here play with this.” At least that is what moms were allowed to do long, long time ago.

Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet. “Do you understand what you are reading?” Philip asked. “How can I,” he said, “unless someone explains it to me?”

So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him. (Acts 8:30-31)

(—Busuttil and César met in 1989, when she was 22 and he 46 years her senior. “He had so much intelligence, charm, and charisma that he seduced everyone,” she recalls. “But he was also extremely complex. He could be joyous and fun but was also racked by doubts and a fear of death.”

Today she manages both his estate and a foundation that bears his name, whose offices occupy the ground floor of her Brussels house. In that capacity she is working with curators on the large César retrospective opening December 13 at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, which brings together more than 120 creations, including his most iconic—cars compressed into rectangular cuboids and a six-meter-high gilded-bronze thumb (the latter will be installed on the esplanade in front of the museum).
