Just for Fun

Happy New Year. One of the world's great masterpieces comes to life!

Study the painting first...
"Night Watch" by Rembrandt
The Rijksmuseum museum in Holland wanted to bring art to the people and

hopefully, they would come to see more. They took one Rembrandt painting

 from 1642, Night Watch, 
and did the following in a busy mall.

Before clicking on the link, take a good look at the painting.

P. S. Because Rembrandt got creative with this commission, the burghers were angry and refused to pay him. His reputation suffered and he had financial troubles for the rest of his career and life. Read more about Rembrandt, one of the masters of printmaking and painting online at
