Photographer's Note

De Nachtwacht (The Nightwatch)

As some of you know, Amsterdam is my beloved city and therefore I like to continue my Amsterdam Scenes, hope you like it (again)....

Here you see a well-known scene, I think. Everyone in the world knows "De Nachtwacht" painted by our most famous artist Rembrandt (van Rijn).

The original painting can be seen in the Rijksmuseum and because of the 400th birthday of Rembrandt there are many expositions in the city.

On the Rembrandtplein (plein = square) now you can find the Nachtwacht in statues made by the Russian artists Alexander Taratynov en Mikhail Dronov.

A lot of internet-sites about Rembrandt and the Nachtwacht can be found on the web.

In the background you can see the master looking over his own work.....

I also made a WS, where you can see the whole group and a WS with a billboard on the train-station in my village, that's a funny one, please have a look, you surely will like it:-))
