A moment with Rembrandt: The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp

In 2019 the city of Leiden promoted the “Rembrandt’s Days”, marking 350 years since the death of the  greatest Dutch artist, Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669), born in that city. For two days Leiden was transformed into the city as it was in the Rembrandt’s times. Inhabitants of its old center had dressed appropriately for the given era, recreating typical scenes from daily life. Several artistic groups performed “live pictures” for the public, demonstrating their mastery in enacting scenes from the most famous paintings of Rembrandt. 

It was my honor, but fun as well, to be a part of a living image of “The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp”. To become, for a moment, connected with the world of the great master from Leiden.
