Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn was born on July 15, 1606 in the city of Leiden. He was a man who lived life on his own terms – for awhile that brought him fortune and fame. The later years of his life were not so easy.
His most famous painting The Night Watch, pictured here, recently finished a long and complex restoration that was done totally in public view.
In honor of Rembrandt's birthday, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam is highlighting the painter's story and works.
See The Night Watch, as well as works by other Dutch artists, and experience the cities and landscape that inspired them on a Rhine River cruise, or a small group tour that includes the Netherlands. Contact Bryan to get started planning your trip.
