This Funzing Experience:
Belated birthday gathering for Rembrandt 15 July

Last year museums all around the world held exhibitions marking the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt van Rijn’s death. In today's "Covid19" reality it seems much farther back.
Rembrandt was a painter and craftsman of color and light. Luck, hard work and connections were in his favor. He moved up the social ladder until he was commissioned to paint the portrait of Amalia of Solms-Braunfels, Princess consort of Orange.
The world was his oyster.
Then the luck run out - he had his own taste of "Covid19" - and in his world,
it was the outbreak of war and illness. He lost his studio, wife, children and house - dying a ruined man and buried in an unmarked grave.

The Rembrandt we get to know in the lecture was passionate man who shared his bed with 3 women. His love and lust for them and his craft is reflects off the canvas and into our hearts.
He saw into the souls of his sitters and immortalized their personalities. It is this energy that captivates us and demands we react to his work - that hits us simultaneously between the eyes and in our gut.

Kinneret is a senior lecturer in the fields of art history, archaeology, and design. I see my function as a mediator between the work and the viewer. Looking at a work of art is a humbling experience: we get to understand the world through someone else's eyes. It is the most democratic and humbling experience I know.
Kinneret invites you to join her on a mesmerizing journey, through the works of different peoples and places, from the past and the present.
Art is a celebration of life, of feelings where creativity and personal growth occurs.
