Rembrandt van rijn

Currently there are not many good quality photos of Rembrandt's paintings online, and I felt these are good photos to share.

These photos were taken from MAT in 2010/05, and his paintings always make me stay here for a while, and his paintings shows the perfection of technique in the whole time.

This tree quarter lighting was what Rembrandt used for most of his portrait paintings, and how he handle the shadow is just amazing.

It is also fun to look at how artists today approach different types of portrait paintings like Lucian Freud, Chuck Close, and many others after seeing 400 years old master paintings.

Thanks for sharing this Jason, I never had the chance to see this painting in person so it's great to have a very good quality photo of it!
