Provenance: -Former collection of the late Dr. P.F.J. Cuypers, Dutch-Indies.

Pieter Frans Jozef Cuypers (1896 -1971) was born in Hanyang, now part of Wuhan, China. After his medical studies, Cuypers moved to the Dutch East Indies in 1925 or 1926. In 1928 he was in Mataram, Lombok, and thereafter in Malang. From 1934 until May 1935 he worked as a doctor with the Public Health Service for the Central Citizens Hospital of Soerabaja. On May 2, 1935 he was appointed as Physician-Director of the Provincial Hospital in Pamekasan. Because he contracted the infection tuberculosis (TBC), he returned to Belgium in 1938 and there he followed in his father’s footsteps as a doctor in Oostham.

Cuypers must have known the painters Strasser and Dooyewaard. His legacy included a portrait of himself painted by Strasser. He passed away in Oostham on 11 April 1971.
