Yup, Rembrandt van Rijn is 400 this Saturday, 15 July, , and he doesn’t look half bad on it I must say. I’d like to say that Frayed and I spent our Amsterdam stopover last week gazing at his paintings at the Rijksmuseum, but I’m afraid the rival attractions of coffee shop lounging and the World Cup won out (and as our favourite was the Amnesia Café that’s about all I can tell you). Amsterdam is such a wonderful city, we had a blast as always. A couple of years ago we did actually pop in to see the Rembrandts and very nice they were too—well worth a visit. Happy birthday RVR.
Postscript If you fancy a Rembrandt on your wall, why not put in a bid here?
