O is for Outrageously Talented

Rembrandt. 

I just love this man's artwork. Most of it is utterly gorgeous and his use of light is masterfully done.

Enjoy. Click to enlarge. It is worth it.


The Storm on the Sea of Galilee, 1633


Belshazzar's Feast, 1635


Philosopher in Meditation, 1632


The Girl in a Picture Frame, 1641

Outrageously talented, isn't he? These are more than 350 years old. 
Isn't that astonishing?
I love it.

Kate, these are gorgeous! Thank you for sharing. I'll have to show his art work to Alyssa when we study Rembrandt.

We studied Rembrandt earlier this year. These are some great ones of his works. :)

We have a Rembrandt in our little art museum in Louisville. "Portrait of a Forty Year Old Woman". Look her up. You'll know how good you look, even on a bad hair day.

I especially like that last one because it is so different - with him including the frame as a part of the painting itself. That was pretty out-of-the-box for Rembrandt's time, wasn't it? I think so. I like his work because he used such dark colors but really showed light, if that makes sense.
