My Rijksmuseum Competition Entry

painting by Pat Harrison aka Rainer Hillebrand

Rembrandt with Rijksmuseum

The picture shows my entry for the 2019 competition called by the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam which had 8,390 works submitted. It marks the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt’s death. As I like to be inspired by the old masters I decided to enter with my interpretation of one of the many self portraits by Rembrandt. Instead of his palette I gave Rembrandt a tablet or iPad showing a photo of the Rijksmuseum.This is to signify where many of his works are being kept with a major exhibition taking place this year.

As always I learnt a lot from interpreting his work. Together with the many books by contemporary realist artists I have studied, these kind of paintings help me improve my understanding of what it takes to create a good painting. The painting is in acrylics on wood size 40x30cm.
