Rembrandt's Light


In Rembrandt's lifetime it is estimated that he created around sixty self portraits... one of the most interesting, near the end of this clip. (My favorite is actually only a suspected self portrait in Storm on the Sea of Galilee, where it is believed that he painted himself in with the disciples and Jesus on the boat - look it up if you aren't familiar with it, it was his only seascape and it's absolutely beautiful. This stunning video (part 1 of 4) is wonderful and you can find all 4 parts on YouTube if you're interested in seeing the rest.  I will forever be fascinated and deeply moved by the passion that drove the great artists of old.  I wonder often if we've lost much of that passion in the noise of our digital age today and strive every day to keep it alive within me.
