Doodle For Rembrandt
Rembrandt van Rijn, known simply as Rembrandt, is considered to be one of the greatest painters in European art history. Born on July 15, 1606 in Leiden, the Netherlands, he is celebrated today, on the anniversary of his birth, with a Google Doodle.
His contributions to art came in a period of great wealth and cultural achievement that historians call the Dutch Golden Age. It is during this time that Rembrandt created one of his most famous painting, The Nightwatch, in 1642.
