Rembrandt

Returning home

Many years before the camera; was invented (the modern camera that is, not it’s origins with the camera obscura), one of the most moving images ever made was given life by the great Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn, born in Holland on the 16th July 1606. The image is likely to have been painted not long before Rembrandt’s death in 1669, and for over 300 years had entranced and moved the countless number of people who have gazed upon it.
