Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn– (1606-1669).
He´s the true genius of the baroque and without any doubt the most important artist of Holland history.
He achieved success young, but his last years were tragic and economic ruin.
He was a master of portraiture and illustration of biblical scenes.
Here some of his most representative works and if you want to learn more, do not hesitate to visit the link above.

Two years ago left us the best Spanish golf player of all time and one of the best in the world history “SEVERIANO BALLESTEROS”.
If you want to know a little more about “Seve”, I advise you to go to the following link and read his biography and his record, is a marvel. I leave here Severiano Ballesteros.
PETER PAUL RUBENS (1577-1640)- The Homer of paint.
He´s just a classic, you never get tired of admiring his works.
You can stand hours an hours looking his paints, and you´ll always discover something new.
“The three Graces”- 1636-1638. Oil on table, 221x 181 cm.
Madrid, National Museum of Prado.
I wish all had the same thought as RUBENS “THE WHOLE WORLD IS MY COUNTRY”. We´ll be more human.
Oil on board. “Alla prima”.
Today I bring you another unfinished work, an “still life” with some fruits, a knife, bread, pumpkin basque, etc.
It´s the first time I place the objects to paint. It´s very simple, but to learn is very good.
Thank you for visiting my blog, in Spain have 2 days of vacation, so I hope you understand if I don´t post as usually. (I´ve to work too)
Greetings for all.
Good evening everybody.
This is another unfinished work “The Statue of Liberty framed by World Trade Towers”.
It´s a postcard I bought in 1998 in NYC´s airport. I was there only 5 days, it was enough to fall in love with the city. (Photographer- DENNIS HALLINAN/FPG).
