Today is the birthday of Rembrandt van Rijn,
The famous Dutch Master who must have been vain.
He did over ninety self-portraits, it's said.
And he kept painting himself until he was dead.
"Of all artists, Rembrandt seems to see deepest into the heart of the human being. However marvelous is his depiction of the glories of the material world, it is what makes the sitter be what he or she is, that really interests him: the conscience, the soul---Rembrandt paints the human interior."
