Any art lovers out there? If so, check out the Rijksmuseum’s online exhibit in honour of Rembrandt van Rijn’s 400th birthday. I’ve been to the Rijksmuseum and have seen the Night Watch in person. It’s very impressive, to say the least.
I have long been fascinated with the prophetess Anna (Luke 2:36-38), so here she is. It’s a beautiful painting, despite the anachronistic codex and the unlikeliness of her having been literate. Since it’s his birthday, we’ll excuse Rembrandt this little bit of artistic license.
ADDENDUM: There are indeed art lovers out there! In that case I’ll add a link for the Rijkswidget, a desktop widget that diplays a different painting from the Rijksmuseum every day. I haven’t tried it yet but it’s gotten rave reviews so far.
