One Year of Rembrandt van Rijn

400th anniversary year of Rembrandt van Rijn is coming to an end. I think I should blog about this artist whom I worship most.
Last March to June, when I was working as a volunteer-guide at the British Museum Exhibition, I saw an authentic Rembrandt print for the first time. (I've never seen an authentic Rembrandt before, for these kind of artworks were simply never on exhibit in China, no to say a city like Hangzhou) Anyway, it was exciting to see the work of my favorite painter, especially that I could be so close, I could gaze at it for as long as I want and I could share what admiration I have of the piece with the visitors. It was an enjoyment indeed.
Now to wind up this year, a number of museums are hosting a final round of Rembrandt display, so if you are like me, who have little chance to see this great master, grab the opportunity now.
