It happened on this day…

On this day in 1606 – Rembrandt (van Rijn), Dutch painter was born.

The Dutch painter’s works included luxuriant brushwork, rich color, and a mastery of chiaroscuro and were mainly portraits, self-portraits, and biblical subjects, which were atypical of Dutch pictures of the 17th century. He was also renowned for his etchings.
