J’Accuse – Rembrandt and the Night Watch

If ever there was a painter that stood for something and used his art to make a stand, it was Rembrandt. If you have the chance to see the documentary “Rembrandt’s J’Accuse” by director Peter Greenaway (see the trailer below) or his film “Nightwatching”, you will learn how Rembrandt created “an indictment of guilt in paint”. A fascinating murder mystery, whose sordid details remain, even today, hidden in plain sight. It’s well worth a watch.

About tropicaltheartist

You can find out more about me here: https://michaeltopic.wordpress.com/. There aren’t many people that exist in that conjunction of art, design, science and engineering, but this is where I live. I am an artist, a musician, a designer, a creator, a scientist, a technologist, an innovator and an engineer and I have a genuine, deep passion for each field. Most importantly, I am able to see the connections and similarities between each field of intellectual endeavour and apply the lessons I learn in one discipline to my other disciplines. To me, they are all part of the same continuum of creativity. I write about what I know, through my blogs, in the hope that something I write will resonate with a reader and help them enjoy their own creative life more fully. I am, in summary, a highly creative individual, but with the ability to get things done efficiently. Not all of these skills are valued by the world at large, but I am who I am and this is me. The opinions stated here are my own and not necessarily the opinion or position of my employer.
