Happy 407th Birthday Rembrandt!

In honor of the 17th century painter, Rembrandt Van Rijn, Google has created a special splash page (affectionately referred to as a Doodle) today to draw attention to the Dutch Master. It features the 1659 “Self-Portrait With Beret and Turned Up Collar,” which can be seen at Washington D.C.’s National Gallery of Art. Check it out at www.google.com, and if you don’t get a chance to see it today, July 15th, then check out this article in the Washington Post, which highlights this tribute and also other artistic Doodle tributes that Google has undertaken over the years. I particularly enjoyed this one for Diego Rivera on his 125th birthday, December 8, 2011.

Let’s hear a toast for Rembrandt! Cheers!
