Always loved the old masters.

Visited Amsterdam last spring, spent hours at the Rijksmuseum,
but Rembrandt stole all of them :)
Left a need to go back and see the rest of it (yes it's humongous).

Was an old dream come true, meeting Rembrandt's work face to face,
finally. How the heck did he do those etchings by hand??? Not even a
wooden computer??!!

Just look at the guy, he had a great sense of humour, didn't he:

The way his Amsterdam glory days ended with the "Nightwatch" - he sort
of brought his misery on himself by refusing to be an ass-licker - is a
fascinating story. Watch the movie "The Nightwatch" - it is bloody good.

I spent a few years at the local town museum as a gallery worker;
started to suspect nobody can do it like in the 17th C anymore...

Rembrandt's way of painting is extremely time consuming and expensive and calls for layer upon layer of paint (with an abundance of patience and skill). Today's artists would have to price their art at ridiculous prices if they followed 17thC painting styles. I actually took a painting course to learn the Master's techniques, but I just don't have the time nor patience at this time in my life.

Here's a painting of Saskia, Rembrandt's wife, by the man himself.

AS, did you ever visit this museum?

There just isn't anything like viewing these masterpieces with the naked eye. I just gotta get over to Britain and parts above, and Europe. gaah.gif

Absolutely phascinating.

Is Albert-Joseph Penot art nouveau?

His stuff a bit simpler and darker than Alphonse Mucha's et co's.

I wander the galleries in DC occasionally. They had a Rodin exhibit (yeah, I know it is sculpture) in the East Gallery many years ago of almost all his works that was killer. The East Gallery used to be mostly 20th Century art.

The West Gallery has a lot of the masters (Rembrandt, Manet, Monet, Renoir, Cézanne, Van Gogh, and Gauguin, etc.). Not sure about Cezanne's art.


Here is a 1910 painting:

Rodin is epic! We (my immediate family) even use have this :smkn: (translates to clenched fist facepalm) acronym representing Rodin's 'The Thinker' but more so hurt feelings and martyrdom.
