tifffanyd: Pierre-Auguste Renoir My all-time favorite painter. He was completely brilliant. I always thought if I “could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive” it would be Renoir. Actually, why not bring along the whole gang? Manet, Morisot, Pissarro, Cezanne, Degas, Bazille, Monet, and Caillebotte. I would be in heaven!
Renoir painted during the last twenty years of his life, even when arthritis severely limited his movement, and he was wheelchair-bound. He developed progressive deformities in his hands and ankylosis of his right shoulder, requiring him to adapt his painting technique.
Judaism is said to be founded by “Abraham” who was a great prophet of God and was born circa 1800 BC. He came to believe that the universe was under one creator “God” and began to teach his ways to others. Abraham was contacted by the creator and told that if he left his family and friends God would give him a great nation and bless him. Once this had happened the bond between the Jewish and God was formed. Judaism is a monotheistic religion of one God creator of the universe.

Rembrandt - Detail, Self Portrait
Rembrandts zoon Titus in monniksdracht, Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn, 1660. #Rijksmuseum
Self-portrait at an early age, Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn, 1628. Despite his lack of experience, the young Rembrandt was not afraid to experiment. In this early self portrait the light brushes past his right cheek. The rest of the face is cloaked in shadow. It takes a moment to realise that the artist is staring intently, directly at the viewer. #Rembrandt used the back of his brush to scratch in the wet paint, to accentuate the curls of his wild, unkempt hair.

The Night Watch, Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn, 1642. Rembrandt’s largest, most famous canvas was made for the Arquebusiers guild hall. This was one of several halls of Amsterdam’s civic guard, the city’s militia and police. Rembrandt was the first to paint figures in a group portrait actually doing something. Rembrandt used the light to focus on particular details, like the captain’s gesturing hand and the young girl in the foreground. She was the company mascot. www.rijksmuseum.nl
